Confronting COVID 19 with dignity and strength: Resilience of small-scale fisheries in Costa Rica

with Vivienne Solis Rivera and Lilia Briones (Costa Rica) and (as moderator) Nalini Nayak (India)

This webinar will share the experience of the association between CoopeSoliDar R.L and small scale fisher communities in Costa Rica in the defense of their rights to responsible, small-scale fisheries. In particular, the experience in the context of COVID 19 and how community resilience has been a result of collective action, community-based governance models, equity, and the innovation of a fair market. These aspects have guaranteed community livelihood security in a moment of great struggle, when traditional markets and tourism collapsed.
