Fisheries co-management at Lake Victoria: starting up a participatory monitoring process (PLA Notes 47)


Journal article

Trying to develop a co-management plan for fisheries on Lake Victoria, it was decided that involvement of local communities was key for long-term stability, and that existing institutions within these communities would help with management. This paper looks at the projects involvement in four communities around the lake, and how they helped shape the management plan.
