This lecture, hosted by the Fish Innovation Lab and Social Science Research Center, focused on how gender dynamics in small-scale fisheries/aquaculture shape men’s and women’s participation and benefits. Research exploring these gender dynamics has increased, yet significant knowledge gaps remain. A renowned scientist and gender expert, Steven Cole discussed how filling these gaps is an important means to enhancing food, nutrition, and economic security of people in low-income settings.
