Building adaptive capacity to climate change: Policies to sustain livelihoods and fisheries
This policy brief describes how climate variability and change influence the fisheries sector and its future contribution to poverty reduction. It reports on a recent global assessment identifying regions where future climate change could have the most significant impact on the contributions of the fisheries sector to national economies. It further reviews adaptive livelihood and institutional responses to climate variability in fisheries and proposes policy actions and initiatives to help governments and fishing communities maintain and build adaptive capacity to climate change.
