SEAFDEC Gender Strategy - Mainstreaming gender in SEAFDEC and its programs
The Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) is an autonomous inter-governmental body with the vision towards “sustainable management and development of fisheries and aquaculture to contribute to food security, poverty alleviation and livelihood of people in the Southeast Asian region.” Working with the national fisheries agencies in 11 SEAFDEC Member Countries as well as with relevant partners, and being aware that gender is one of the important issues in ensuring the sustainable development of the fisheries sector of Southeast Asia, which includes largely small-scale fisheries and aquaculture, SEAFDEC is therefore adopting its Gender Strategy to facilitate gender mainstreaming at all levels of the organization, and serve as an organizational overarching framework to facilitate SEAFDEC’s efforts in integrating gender in its programs, projects, and activities. The SEAFDEC Gender Strategy is also intended to subsequently support the integration of gender perspectives in fisheries and aquaculture in the Member Countries of SEAFDEC.
