Marine Fisheries Case Studies. Appropriate Technologies for Development. Case Study No. 1.
Chakroff, Marilyn; DuBois, Random
This guide was developed to aid Peace Corps volunteers interested in programming marine fisheries projects. Although these projects are not new to the Peace Corps, new staff members may not be aware of the history of marine fisheries efforts in their country. Chapter 1 discusses all past marine fisheries projects initiated by the Peace Corps in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and in Latin America and the Caribbean. Chapter 2 presents case studies of projects in Chile, El Salvador, Philippines, Togo, and Western Samoa, examining the kinds of factors that influence the success of marine fisheries development projects as well as program strengths and weaknesses. Chapter 3 builds on the preceding two chapters by discussing general criteria for success of future Peace Corps marine fisheries programming and outlines the types of projects that can utilize skilled volunteers. A task analysis for village-level fisheries development that lists the skills needed for various aspects of such a program is included. Also included (in appendices) is a list of all past Peace Corps marine fisheries projects by region and country and a bibliography of general references and references by region and country. (JN)
