The purpose of the forum was to foster a mutual understanding of the challenges faced by different groups in fisheries communities and to find common ground and options for empowering fishers and fisheries stakeholders. The 140 participants from 38 countries discussed the importance of tenure and rights for responsible resource management and equitable development in fisheries. Best practices and lessons learned were identified by forum participants based on their own experiences in a wide range of fisheries. The knowledge gained from the forum is being used as the starting point for the development of a proposal for a global work programme, “Advancing knowledge on rights-based approaches for fisheries: A global work programme for enhancing food security and nutrition, poverty eradication, and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals,” as well as influencing the content of a technical guide which supports implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) in the fisheries sector.
