Dear <<First Name>>

The implementation of the Small-Scale Fisheries Guidelines were the principal focus of Mundus maris activities reported here. These efforts were marked, among others, by the active participation in the 3rd World Small-Scale Fisheries Congress in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in October and the launch of the Small-Scale Fisheries Academy in Senegal in November flanked also by work with a large grouping of women in the post-harvest sector struggling for their social and economic future.

It's become busier as the months go by - and ever more demanding to keep it all up. We managed also thanks to the great commitment of our volunteers and partners. As the level of work increases, please

Earth System Governance Conference, Utrecht, 5-8 November

The Earth System Governance Community brings together hundreds of scholars from all over the world to reflect on their vast theme from a wide variety of angles. Together with colleagues from the geo-ethics community, Mundus maris presented a paper focused on what we can learn from small-scale fisheries for governance in other complex systems in one of the two ocean panels. We also contributed actively to the debates in several others.

Small-Scale Fisheries Academy in Senegal launched on 14 November

On suggestion of Mundus maris, a multi-stakeholder organising committee of professional, academic and civil-society partners launched the much awaited Small-Scale Fisheries Academy in Senegal. Gracefully hosted by the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) on the campus of the Cheikh Anta Diop University in Dakar, the 62 participants from all regions of Senegal debated and agreed about what they wanted the academy to be and set its priorities for the start-up period to contribute to implementing the SSF Directives through an open platform for the co-production of knowledge and innovation.
