Abstract or Summary
  • Small scale fisheries play an important role in coastal communities as well as macro economy of the country. Value chains of small scale fisheries and the actors were highly vulnerable to climate change effects due to its inherited nature of poor resource status, scale of operation, and imperfect knowledge on markets. Key focus of the study was the role of imagining adaptations for small scale fisheries that would contribute to minimizing the negative impacts of climate change on employment, income, food security, health and safety. The first part of the study focused eye on collaborative design. Randomly selected stakeholders were involved in designing process. The design considerations include weather forecasting, weather warnings, craft and gear design, postharvest handling, designing landing sites and markets, distribution systems, training programmes for crew members, and financial management to imagine adaptations scenarios. Crowd sourcing approach forwarded to measure the feasibility and social acceptability of the design and visualization strategies. Crowd source model allows access to particular knowledge which empowered uses to make changes best fit to their locations as well as inform general public about the climate change including both negative and positive aspects.
