Fisherfolk across Belize will be undergoing some much needed training thanks to the Belize Fishermen Cooperative Association. The Association, which represents over 2000 fishers from 13 coastal fishing communities, will conduct a workshop geared towards capacity building and alternative livelihoods. Chairperson of the Coop, Pedro Alvarez, gave us an overview of what the training entails.

“We have the practice of inability, good fishing practice, safety; we have with the climate changes with the met service to make know the fisherman know the climate changes have impacted and that was new in the agenda because it impacts our marine resources out there and then we have the first aider from the Red Cross, the coast guard and the police because of so many things happening out in the sea and now with these trial times, they have had different encounters, people have gone missing and all of that so we trying to put all these things together and have this workshop with the fisher folks so that they could be there and ask questions for their best interest of their livelihood.”

The workshop is part of a project funded by the Community Management of Protected Areas Conservation Programme (COMPACT) and are being held in communities such as Caye Caulker, Chunox, Placencia, and Sarteneja.
