Abstract or Summary
  • Recently, Thai government has placed gender issues on agenda of its policies and has allocated budget for implementation of projects on gender. For fisheries sector, there are many fisheries development projects implemented under the National Fisheries Development Strategy. However, gender issues have not been considered in the project cycle due to the lack of clear action plan to make gender a cross cutting issue in the fisheries development projects. A study on gender issues in Tilapia Cage Culture Project Cycle in Nong Khai Province was conducted to identify the gender norms, roles, benefits and imbalances within production units and project cycle in relation to this project. The findings of the study will be used to develop the gender strategy and action plan integrated in the national fisheries development strategies. Qualitative methods and quantitative methods were used for primary data collection. The study was funded by the Mekong River Commission in 2014-2015. The study provided recommendations for (1) reviews to improve tools for effective gender analyses in fisheries value chains and how these are being fed into fisheries development project design, and (2) formulation of gender strategy and action plan integrated in the national fisheries strategies and for gender specific environmental safeguards for Tilapia cage culture based on the finding of study. This paper would be considered as a good example of integrating the gender research findings into the national fisheries development strategies and gender action plan in fisheries in Thailand.
