Terra Madre ecosystems: water lands & women in fishing.
By Slow Food Youth Network
In the framework of the Slow Food event Terra Madre, today we are exploring another ecosystem: the water lands. We will particularly focus on the role and the rights of women in fishing in different territories. In this podcast episode you will be accompanied by Lapo Degli Innocenti. Lapo is a researcher on International Law and Sustainable Development. Through his dissertation – A Rhapsody in Blue: International Fisheries Law towards (Un)Sustainable Development? – he explored international law’s key role in the sustainable development of worldwide fisheries. He also wrote the Slow Fish Report for the 2019 Network's gathering in Genoa - Fishing for Alternatives: the Blue Commons. The policy paper collects the position of the Slow Fish Community for a different approach to fisheries than the mainstream "Blue Growth". Special guests of this episode: Donatella Marino: she processes the Menaica anchovies of the Slow Food Presidium in Campania, Italy with a very ancient technique. She explains the story of the presidium, her personal experience and gives us some delicious recipes; Hilda Adams: she is the founder of a women collective of small scale fisherwomen in the West Coast in South Africa. She talks about her fight to establish fisherwomen rights and the rights of her community; Sandra Amézaga: she is the spokesperson of AKTEA, the first European network of fisherwomen's organizations in Europe. Aktea is acting at European and national level to gain recognition for the role of women in fisheries and aquaculture and to achieve gender equality in these sectors.
