New Methodological Approaches for Change in Traditional Sectors: The Case of the West Java Fisheries Socio Economic System

Title variants
Languages of publication
This paper summarises the methodological approach and main results of the Coastal project (Employment and Human Resources in the Fisheries Socio-Economic System). This project had as its main aim the search for alternative futures for the fisheries sector in West Java, with particular attention being paid to the human resources situation and the working and living conditions of the fisheries-dependent populations in the coastal areas. This is a particularly interesting case, since fisheries were once an important activity and they are now in deep recession, even though it is generally recognised that the future utilisation of maritime resources offer an immense potential. As part of the research, a Delphi exercise was implemented involving in two successive stages some of the leading actors and experts dealing with the sector in West Java. Other initiatives were held in the context of the Coastal project providing direct and indirect inputs to the scenarios and recommendations that were put forward in the sequence of the Delphi exercise. Overall, the activities described in the paper contribute to the mobilisation of major actors and to discussions that may have practical implication for the future of the sector - if certain conditions are now met in the follow up to the project.
