Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this article and presentation is to present an overview of the value-chain analysis project on international fish trade and food security with an impact assessment of the small-scale sector. Outlining the project’s importance, approach, results and conclusions, the summary article serves as an initial background document to portray an overall picture of the work conducted. It has been based on numerous country reports, as well as the background and price synthesis reports. Further reading with more specific details can be found on the project’s website (www.fao.org/valuechaininsmallscalefisheries) where all of the country reports, presentations and additional documents that were completed as part of the analysis have been posted. The article is organised as follows. The first section presents the rationale for why this study was undertaken, and includes sub-sections on the importance of the small-scale sector to livelihoods, fish’s direct contribution to food security, the importance of trade to food security and conclusions on the importance of the study. The second section then focuses on the value-chain concept and how it differs from the more traditional supply-chain approach, with examples of value-chains in fisheries and aquaculture presented. The fourth section represents the conclusions from the project, with general themes found between case studies discussed and technical, organisational and policy recommendations presented. The final section concludes the article and outlines areas for further research and analysis.
