  • Description

The Participatory and Integrated Policy (PIP) process is a structured approach to research, dialogue, decision-making, institutional reform and development-resource allocation, which promotes greater involvement of all stakeholders in the policy process and harmonises their conflicting objectives, strategies and capacities. This field guide is designed to provide some structure to researching the policy formulation process. It aims to complement, and forms a bridge between, the specific social, economic, environmental and technical fisheries skills of researchers in the area of small -scale fisheries policy.
