About The Event

Workshop Goal: 

The goal of this workshop is to identify finance challenges and barriers while exploring both practical and innovative approaches to support sustainable technology investment for small-scale fisheries (SSF). 

Workshop Overview: 

This workshop will bring together technology providers and developers with practitioners to explore traditional as well as innovative finance tools and mechanisms to help support technology implementation and development. The workshop is intended to take a pragmatic and realistic approach to funding mechanisms available to support technology implementation. 

The workshop will consist of a brief presentation on various existing funding models followed by facilitated discussion. Following the initial presentation and discussion, breakout groups will be formed to further define objectives targeted at achieving the workshop goals. 

The initial presentation and subsequent discussion will focus on the following key components of technology finance for small-scale fisheries: 

- Available and emerging technologies under consideration for SSF; 

- Basic costs of those technologies generally perceived as the most effective priority technologies; 

- Existing funding models and mechanisms available for SSF investment in technology; and 

- Innovative and novel approaches to sustainable funding of technology for SSF. 

After the initial presentation and discussion, the workshop will break up into a collaborative session consisting of three separate breakout groups. Breakout groups will discuss the topics presented and potential pathways forward to support both incentives for technology adoption as well as explore various funding models to support technology implementation.
