Community fisheries governance -Liberia

The project aimed to explore successful community-based rights systems as a tool for delivering the potential benefits from coastal fisheries. The project documented and evaluated some empirical examples where Rights-Based Fisheries Management (RBFM) systems have been, or are being, set up in African communities, particularly where these systems are economically, ecologically and socially sustainable.

The outputs of the project informed the introduction and/or strengthening of fishing rights in targeted fisheries in West Africa (through pilot activities supported by the World Bank West Africa Regional Fisheries Program (WARFP)). It was expected however that the results may provide guidance to beyond this region to Africa as a whole, and to other regions in the world
