Small-scale fishers, fish workers and fish farmers are some of the most exposed and vulnerable to hazard.

This infographic is part of work by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) to focus global attention on the importance and the role played by small-scale fishers, fish farmers and fish worker.

It shows how climate change is reshaping and increasing risk in aquatic food systems, examples of climate change impacts on small-scale fisheries and aquaculture, and some priority interventions for climate adaptation.

Effective implementation of these solutions requires institutional adaptation, including equitable governance and increased public and private investment in building adaptive capacity, particularly at the community level.
