In response to the Covid-19 lockdown and the postponement of the April CHERISH interregional learning and exchange of experience event in Mallorca, Snowchange has produced a review paper covering the policy improvement aspects of fisheries traditional ecological knowledge (TEK).

The paper gives three clear examples of European good practices relating to TEK and policy.

This short review is produced to stimulate discussion between CHERISH partners on the tangible policy relevance of traditional ecological knowledge, and how they may include TEK within their own regions Action Plans. 

As an advisory partner within the cHERISH project Snowchange very much looks forward to being involved in these discussions.
