Article
Full-text available
As the climate crisis persists, there is a crucial need to increase knowledge on adaptive capacity and the underlying factors building it. This is particularly important for disadvantaged groups, such as coastal women in East Africa. Women’s livelihoods in these seascapes are and will be more severely affected by climate change and the capacity of...
Article
Full-text available
This paper examines the need to embed gender in an empirical examination or conceptual use of Blue Justice. In developing the Blue Justice concept, there is a need to avoid reproducing ongoing and historical omissions of gender issues in small-scale fisheries governance and research. By drawing on the concepts of procedural and distributive justice...
Article
Full-text available
Climate change triggers a wide mosaic of regional and local responses, often different to the large-scale variability in magnitude and direction. Because of the psychological connections (cognitive and emotional) with the frequency, intensity and age of a climatic event, people may have the capacity to recognize key variations at lower scales, espe...
Chapter
Full-text available
Zanzibar in 1964 merged with Tanganyika to become the United Republic of Tanzania (URT). Zanzibar enjoys autonomy in the governance of marine resources having adverse effects on the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) as Za...
Chapter
This chapter highlights some governance challenges in small-scale fisheries in the East African region using the case of Chwaka Bay, Zanzibar, Tanzania. In this case, self-governance processes involve strong normative and cultural-cognitive aspects that have underpinned de facto management actions and blocked other options towards sustainability. T...
Article
Full-text available
Local participation in governance and management is assumed to lead to something good. But it is rarely explicitly stated who are participating and in what. The study investigates this in the context of a Marine Protected Area (MPA) in Zanzibar, Tanzania, and in particular the Memba Island – Chwaka Bay Marine Conservation Area (MIMCA). This is done...
Article
Full-text available
This paper fills an important gap towards adaptive management of small-scale fisheries by analyzing the gender dimension of fish trade in Zanzibar, Tanzania. We hypothesize that gender-based differences are present in the fish value chain and to test the hypothesis interviews were performed to analyze: (i) markets, customers, and mobility, (ii) mat...
Chapter
Full-text available
During recent decades, the serious challenges that the planet is facing in terms of population growth, ecosystem damage and changes in flows of good and services call for novel ways to direct research so that it can be useful for promoting sustain-ability. The integration of different disciplines is much needed when tackling such challenges. At thi...
Data
Seaweed mariculture has been promoted as a development project in tropical countries and Zanzibar, Tanza-nia, is commonly presented as a successful story. However, the results of the present research provide a nu-anced picture of the activity identifying serious health problems among farmers. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with female se...

Article
Institutional approaches in natural resource management in general and in fisheries in particular seldom address cultural aspects or social institutions like kinship. In this study, a broad institutional approach is used to investigate the institutionalization of small-scale fisheries and seaweed farming in a seagrass dominated bay in Zanzibar. Reg...

Project
The project (acronym SEAgender = “See gender in the sea” and “social-ecological analysis and gender”) aims to contribute to an important but understudied aspect of the interaction between gender and environment. Specifically, it addresses the knowledge gap about the differential effects of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) on men and women and their relationship in tropical developing countries.
