The newsletter contains information on aspects of tenure and provides details on the voluntary guidelines.
“Secure and Equitable tenure lies at the heart of the human rights of small-scale fishing communities, farmers, peasants, indigenous people and local communities. These people and communities depend on their access to land and other natural resources for their food security and livelihoods” Fisher’s Net editorial.
