The fisheries sector platform (roundtable) is consolidated in the Northern Amazon


The fisheries sector platform (roundtable) is consolidated in the Northern Amazon

To develop partnerships and strategic alliances in the fisheries sector, Peces para la Vida II promoted a series of meetings between fishers, vendors, entrepreneurs, public institutions and indigenous and rural organizations in an enabling environment that stimulates concerted action.

Five meetings were held as Social Training modules for Local Development (FSDL). Three key elements that are necessary for the formation of platforms were addressed: contextualization of the local framework, management tools for platforms, and the skills and abilities of its members.

Each working meeting in Riberalta was attended by important sector institutions and associations. Public sector participants included IPD PACU, INIAF, SEDAG Beni, Sub-Gobernación de la Provincia Vaca Diez, the Township and Autonomous Municipal Government of Riberalta. Participants from the private sector included FEUPECOPINAB, ASOPRYC, ASOPESAR, ARAPAIMA (all from Riberalta), the Fisheries Center of Rosario del Yata (Guayamerín) and the Fishers Associations of Tahuamanu and Puerto Rico (the first from the town of Porvenir and the latter from Puerto Rico, both in Pando).
