Gender integrated research for development in Pacific coastal fisheries
The project Strengthening and Scaling Communitybased Approaches to Pacific Coastal Fisheries in Management Support of the New Song (henceforth the Pathways project) aims to improve the wellbeing of Pacific coastal communities through more productive and resilient fisheries and better food and nutrition security. The project began in September 2017 and will end in June 2021. The objective of this brief is to illustrate the applied and diverse ways the Pathways project is integrating gender. It is hoped that these approaches will stimulate further discussions and refinements among those committed to improving coastal fisheries, food security and Pacific Island community well-being.
