DANGME: SSF Guidelines: Governance of tenure and resource management

Dangme, Ghana. This short, animated video gives insights into governance of tenure and resource management in small-scale fisheries. The term "tenure" refers to how rights to natural resources such as land, lakes, rivers, coasts and forests are assigned within societies.

For a fishery to be sustainable, it is important to ensure that the fish and the ecosystem are kept healthy and resilient. All who depend on fish for food and livelihood have a responsibility. Small-scale fishers are important stewards of the resource. They need secure and stable access to fishing grounds. They also need access to land so they can bring fish ashore, have a place to process fish, and have a place to live.

The Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) give recommendations on responsible governance of tenure and sustainable resource management.
