Synthesis Review: Key Factors Supporting Small-Scale Coastal Fisheries Management

This synthesis review of key factors supporting small-scale coastal fisheries management was undertaken by the Foundation Center with financial support from the Rockefeller Foundation. The work was carried out by a team based at IMM Ltd, in Exeter, UK, from July to September 2013.

It was designed to provide an evidence base on the success factors in small-scale coastal fisheries management in developing countries and, in turn, to assist the Rockefeller Foundation in developing its strategy for its Oceans and Fisheries Initiative. In doing so, it identifies and describes some 20 key factors believed to influence success in small-scale coastal fisheries management.
