Footnotes To advocate for the implementation of the SSF Guidelines and foster a knowledge-exchange platform for small-scale fishers, WWF joined a coalition of partners to launch the SSF Hub. The SSF Hub is an interactive, multilingual website that provides free access to resources to support small-scale fisheries and connect people around the world to share experiences and advocate for prosperous, equitable and resilient small-scale fisheries and communities. Among other initiatives, The Hub hosts events — such as the Fisher Voices on COVID event discussed throughout this piece — providing a platform for small-scale fishery actors to share their stories and advocate for their priorities. The Fisher Voices on COVID event was co-hosted by the International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF), Fauna & Flora International (FFI), COAST Foundation, National Fisheries Solidarity Organization (NAFSO), Legal Aid to Women Trust (LAW Trust), and Sustainable Development Foundation.
