Fisherfolk in Anguilla developed a participatory video – “Anguilla’s Fishing Dilemma” – to document local perspectives on climate change impacts, their vulnerabilities and priorities for adaptation in the fisheries sector. This process was supported by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) and the Department of Fisheries and Marine Resources, Anguilla, as part of the Climate change adaptation in the fisheries of Anguilla and Montserrat project with funding from the UK Government’s Darwin Initiative.
Fisherfolk in Anguilla were trained in using participatory video as a tool to document their perspectives and support local climate change awareness and advocacy. They worked together with CANARI and their national fisheries authorities to jointly identify a topic, draft a story board and script and collect and review video footage at various sites to produce their videos. They also selected specific groups to target with the videos, including key policy makers needed to enable changes in policy and practice in the fisheries sector. The participatory videos were released in 2019 and have been showcased in Anguilla and Montserrat, on regional news and on social media, and are helping promote Goals 13 and 14 on climate action and life under water.
