Women aim for a better place in the Blue Economy

According to the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), women hold the 47% globally, amongst the 120 million people, who earn money directly from fishing and processing. The IMO-supported event WOMESA  highlighted the challenges that women face in the Blue Economy, as the fishing sector is thought to be predominantly male. 

Enhancing women’s role in the fishing industry

Despite the fact that fishing is one of the world’s most dangerous professions, many people depend on this industry for their livelihoods, and especially women who often face difficult conditions. For this reason, IMO focused on providing equal opportunities for the women in the sector, during the first International Conference of Women in Fisheries.
