Climate Change and small-scale fisheries. A case for comprehensive climate risk management

The effects of climate change and increasing extreme weather events on the oceans are key challenges for small-scale fisheries. This study highlights some of the economic as well as non-economic losses and damages associated with these effects.

It aims at developing a bet¬ter understanding of the impacts of climate change on small-scale fisheries to identify suitable risk-management-solutions, and to show entry points for comprehensive climate risk management (CRM) in order to enhance resilience. The study synthesizes the results of three reviews of baseline information covering the Carib¬bean, the South Pacific and West Africa.
