Gender https://enaca.org/rss/?tag=18 The Gender Programme was established to ensure that NACA implements the action plans on gender mainstreaming within its activities. With a continued interest in embracing gender integration among relevant agencies, NACA aims to build up capacity of members in gender mainstreaming in all its undertakings, and motivate support and action globally. Insufficient capacity for gender research and application among stakeholders is a hindrance to effectively implement programs integrating the gender dimensions in development. Adding a gender dimension in aquaculture value chains will give assurance to consumers that seafood has been produced sustainably. Key activities Key activities of the programme are: Women, Youth and Aquaculture Development Programme. Organising and supporting symposia on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries. Capacity building on gender integration and mainstreaming. Curriculum development on gender in aquaculture and fisheries education. In-country gender assessment reports for policy, action and research. Publication of case studies and success stories on gender in aquaculture value chains. Coordinating the Regional Gender Practitioners’ Network and mentoring programmes. Campaigns and policy advocacy for gender integration in aquaculture.

Expanding the horizon of aquaculture through women's empowerment https://enaca.org/?id=1285&title=expanding-the-horizon-of-aquaculture-through-women%27s-empowerment

The concept of “empowerment” was introduced at the International Women’s conference in 1985 at Nairobi, which defined empowerment as a “redistribution of social power and control of resources in favour of women”. In recent years the development of women has emphasised providing equal opportunities to women by removing gender bias, empowering, and creating self-reliance among them. Empowerment of women and gender equality is recognised globally as a key element to achieve progress in all areas. Globally, the role of women and the need to consider gender issues in aquaculture development was first recognised by the FAO-NORAD sponsored workshop on “Women in Aquaculture” in 1987.

Augmenting entrepreneurial attitude among tribal women of Jharkhand, India https://enaca.org/?id=1256&title=augmenting-entrepreneurial-attitude-among-tribal-women-of-jharkhand

Today, tribal people comprise 8.6 percent of the Indian population and are one of the most disadvantaged sections of society. Many tribal groups in different parts of the country depend on natural resources for their livelihoods, to which their access has been progressively eroded. With financial support from ICAR-CIFT the College of Fisheries, Gumla, undertook seven training programmes for tribal women from economically marginalised tribal communities in the preparation and marketing of value-added fisheries products. The training encouraged women to develop small businesses building on their micro-entrepreneurship.

A success story of ornamental fish farming as a tool for alternative livelihood of tribal women in Keonjhar District, Odisha, india https://enaca.org/?id=1230&title=a-success-story-of-ornamental-fish-farming-as-a-tool-for-alternative-livelihood-of-tribal-women-in-keonjhar-district%2C-odisha%2C-india

In Odisha, India, ornamental fish farming, culture and seed production are being utilised by self help groups to provide livelihoods for poor people in rural communities. The objective of self help groups is to sustainably increase the income of poor families to bring them above the poverty line. This is being achieved through a process of social mobilisation, training and capacity building, and provision of some necessary facilities.

The common freshwater snail Bellamya bengalensis, golden apple snail Pila globosa and freshwater pearl mussel Lamellidens marginalis are naturally found in West Bengal. These molluscs are also an important source of protein for poor rural communities, and are also gaining popularity in middle and high income suburban areas for their nutritional and traditional medicinal values. They also represent a significant source of employment and income generation for women from Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Castes. This article documents the collection, preparation, trade and use of freshwater molluscs in Paschim Medinipur and Purba Medinipur districts of West Bengal.
