The International Collective in Support of Fish Workers (ICSF), World Forum of Fisher Peoples (WFFP) and National Fishworkers' Forum (NFF) today urged parties at the ongoing CoP -11 conference at HICC here to ensure a central focus on improving governance, participation, equity and benefit sharing in the context of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). ICSF is an International NGO that works to support small-scale fisheries and fishing communities while WFFP is a forum of national organizations representing fishing communities and NFF is a federation of state-level trade unions in India. The three fisher organisations in a statement said they were faced with denial of their livelihood in MPAs besides local fishing communites across the world often have opposed the MPAs. The Organisations said yet the indigenous peoples and local fishing communities were also known to have evolved effective systems, traditional and more recent, to govern their resources.
