Presentation: Small-scale Fisheries and Institutional Reform in Rural Tanzania

Small-scale fisheries employ the majority of world fishers, providing food and livelihoods to 100's of millions of fishers and their families. In these institutional settings, "top-down" approaches from developed countries, which have successfully generated billions of dollars in new wealth, are not viable. This is due to physical and information infrastructure required for effective implementation and monitoring is absent. As a result, understanding mechanisms that foster strong local institutions for small-scale fisheries management is of critical importance. 

This presentation is based on the AMA Innovation Lab projects for the BASIS AMA CRSP/I4 Index Insurance Innovation Initiative Technical Committee Meeting. This event was a gathering of researchers and stakeholders involved with the Index Insurance Innovation Initiative (I4) at UC Davis.

This presentation took place at George Washington University, United States on November 6, 2014.
