This document is part of a series of briefs framed under the provisions of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines). These briefs aim at assessing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on several areas that are crucial to the livelihoods and sustainable development of the small-scale fisheries sector and portray examples of coping strategies that small-scale fisheries stakeholders have used to mitigate the effects of the pandemic on the sector. Although the examples showcased in this document are related to the COVID-19 pandemic, they are also relevant to other types of disasters. These examples could inform future emergency response plans aiming at mitigating the impacts of natural disasters on the small-scale fisheries sector, especially in the event of major biological hazards. Likewise, the examples discussed in this document should be kept in mind during any development initiative, even in the absence of disasters, to increase the resilience of and socio-economic benefits for small-scale fishers, fish workers and their communities.
