This regional document includes a compilation of gender-related policies and legal frameworks across ASEAN member countries, and reflects the experiences and lessons of contributors in fisheries workplaces operating across Southeast Asia and the Coral Triangle region. Between 2017 and 2020, this regional technical guidance document on the integration of gender within fisheries workplaces within fishery supply chains was collaboratively developed between USAID Oceans, the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC), Coral Triangle Initiative for Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF) Women Leaders’ Forum (WLF), and SEAFDEC/CTI-CFF member country representatives from the USAID Oceans Human Welfare and Gender Equality (HWGE) Technical Working Group. This document is available for the use of SEAFDEC and CTI-CFF member countries, including governmental and non-governmental staff and technical personnel as a reference to ensure that gender aspects are appropriately integrated into fisheries and coastal resource management.
