European marine recreational fisheries - fisheries assessment and management - fishing effort and expenditure - participation - surveys and monitoring of marine recreational fisheries
Marine recreational fishing (MRF) is a high-participation activity with large economic value and social benefits globally, and it impacts on some fish stocks. Although reporting MRF catches is a European Union legislative requirement, estimates are only available for some countries. Here, data on numbers of fishers, participation rates, days fished, expenditures, and catches of two widely targeted species were synthesized to provide European estimates of MRF and placed in the global context. Uncertainty assessment was not possible due to incomplete knowledge of error distributions; instead, a semi-quantitative bias assessment was made. There were an estimated 8.7 million European recreational sea fishers corresponding to a participation rate of 1.6%. An estimated 77.6 million days were fished, and expenditure was €5.9 billion annually. There were higher participation, numbers of fishers, days fished and expenditure in the Atlantic than the Mediterranean, but the Mediterranean estimates were generally less robust. Comparisons with other regions showed that European MRF participation rates and expenditure were in the mid-range, with higher participation in Oceania and the United States, higher expenditure in the United States, and lower participation and expenditure in South America and Africa. For both northern European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax, Moronidae) and western Baltic cod (Gadus morhua, Gadidae) stocks, MRF represented 27% of the total removals. This study highlights the importance of MRF and the need for bespoke, regular and statistically sound data collection to underpin European fisheries management. Solutions are proposed for future MRF data collection in Europe and other regions to support sustainable fisheries management.

Voldoende bewegen en gezond eten helpt bij het herstel van ziektes of verbetert de kwaliteit van leven bij chronische ziektes. Helaas lukt het lang niet iedereen om dit toe te passen. Daarom zijn Wageningen University & Research (Division of Human Nutrition, Wageningen Plant Research, Rural Sociology) en AMS institute binnen Flevo Campus het pilotproject Helende tuinen gestart om te onderzoeken of we mensen een manier kunnen bieden die wel makkelijk is om in te passen in je leven. We laten ze samen tuinieren. Jan Eelco Jansma, onderzoeker stad-landrelaties bij Wageningen University & Research, vertelt erover in deze video.

Gemeenten zijn per 1 januari 2015 verantwoordelijk voor uitvoering van de Jeugdwet, Wmo en de Participatiewet. De invoering van de Participatiewet leidt tot de toestroom van een nieuwe doelgroep waaronder veel mensen met psychische problemen die behoefte hebben aan langdurige ondersteuning.
De decentralisaties vormen een grote uitdaging voor gemeenten. Niet alleen komen er nieuwe taken op gemeenten af, maar er wordt ook flink bezuinigd. Gemeenten moeten dus meer doen met minder geld. Maar er zijn ook kansen.
Voor het eerst krijgt één partij, de gemeente, zeggenschap over praktisch het hele sociale domein. De decentralisaties maken dwarsverbanden tussen de Wmo/Awbz, de jeugdzorg en het domein van werk en inkomen mogelijk. Werkplekken waar mensen vanuit de participatiewet, WMO en jeugdzorg terecht kunnen hebben daarom de aandacht van gemeenten.
Deze factsheet gaat over de mogelijkheden die het groen biedt voor re-integratie van mensen met psychische problemen. Interessante voorbeelden van re-integratie initiatieven zijn stadslandbouwbedrijven, landschapsonderhoud,
zorgboerderijen, groenonderhoud en groene wijkinitiatieven.
De factsheet is gebaseerd op literatuuronderzoek, interviews en groepsgesprekken met initiatiefnemers, mensen met psychische problemen die werken in het groen (deelnemers) en betrokken beleidsmedewerkers van verschillende groene re-integratie initiatieven. In deze factsheet komen de volgende thema’s aan bod:
• Welke vormen van groene re-integratie bestaan er in Nederland?
• Wat is de mogelijke theoretische onderbouwing en wat zijn de werkzame elementen van groene re-integratie?
• Wat zijn de randvoorwaarden van groene re-integratie? En wat is er nodig om deze vorm van re-integratie verder in
te bedden en op te schalen?
Social learning for adaptive delta management : Tidal River Management in the Bangladesh Delta
Mutahara, Muhmuda ; Warner, Jeroen F. ; Wals, Arjen E.J. ; Shah Alam Khan, M. ; Wester, Flip - \ 2017
International Journal of Water Resources Development (2017). - ISSN 0790-0627 - 21 p.
adaptive delta management - Bangladesh - participation - social learning - Tidal River Management

The article analyzes Tidal River Management in Bangladesh from a social learning perspective. Four cases were investigated using participatory assessment. Knowledge acquisition through transformations in the Tidal River Management process was explored as an intended learning outcome. The study finds that social learning occurred more prominently at the individual stakeholder level and less at the collective level. For Tidal River Management to be responsive and sustainable, especially in times of increased uncertainty and climate vulnerability, more attention needs to be paid to coordination and facilitation of multi-level learning that includes all stakeholders.

Women’s work has never been a linear process of extending participation. Instead, female labour force participation (FLFP) has extended and curtailed throughout time. This dissertation studies a period of contraction: the nineteenth-century Netherlands. This country makes an important case study to explore the factors influencing the trajectory of women’s work. First, FLFP rates as recorded in occupational censuses were low compared with surrounding countries. Second, Dutch industrialization took off relatively late and until well into the twentieth century a significant part of the labour force worked in agriculture, in contrast to neighbouring countries such as Britain and Belgium.

This dissertation contributes to answering the following question: Why were Dutch female labour force participation rates lower than in surrounding countries during the period 1830-1914? I consider the following explanatory factors: social norms, the opportunity costs of women’s labour, and structural change. My conclusions about the relative weight of each factor are as follows. First, social norms regarding women’s role within the household following from the growing desire for domesticity have affected the trajectory of women’s labour. I show that married women withdrew from the registered labour force and instead, performed work that could be combined with domestic chores and that remained invisible in most statistical sources. However, these social norms were likewise strong in other western European countries, such as Britain, where FLFP was higher. Furthermore, Dutch FLFP was already low around 1850 when the transition to the male breadwinner society in western Europe started. Thus, it is no conclusive explanation for the aberrant Dutch trend in FLFP.

Second, men’s real industrial wages started to rise after 1880 and became increasingly able to take care of a family of four. However, this was not true for men’s agricultural wages. Women’s wages in both sectors hardly increased at all during the nineteenth century in both sectors. I therefore conclude that industrial households were already able to realize a breadwinner-homemaker type of labour division from the 1880s, whereas agricultural households still relied for an important part on other sources of income besides the husband’s wage labour by 1910. Thus, men’s wages profoundly influenced household labour division. However, in Britain, men’s real wages were even higher, but so were FLFP rates in the censuses. Thus, if the extent of men’s real wages was indeed the most important explanatory factor, we would have expected even lower participation rates in Britain than in the Netherlands.

Third, the impact of economic structure and the changing demand for labour on FLFP has been a pivotal factor of influence. I show that the structure of the local economy had a statistically significant effect on the chance that a bride stated an occupation in her marriage record. Furthermore, in agriculture women increasingly performed work in a private business which was usually not registered in the censuses. Moreover, technological change in the textile industry and the transition to the factory system negatively impacted women’s position in the labour market because married women could no longer combine domestic chores with wage labour. Finally, many parts of the production process that had traditionally been women’s work were taken over by men when mechanization progressed.

Considering all my research results, I conclude that the structure of the Dutch economy is the most important explanation for the exceptionally low Dutch FLFP rates during the long nineteenth century.

Steeds meer mensen wonen in de stad. Dit is niet altijd een gezonde leefomgeving. Veel mensen ervaren stress, het ontbreekt aan sociale samenhang, de lucht is vervuild en het veranderende klimaat leidt tot toenemende hittestress en wateroverlast. Slim gebruik van groen is deel van de oplossing voor al deze uitdagingen.
Boundary spaces, objects and activities in mixed-actor knowledge production: making fishery management plans in collaboration

This paper investigates knowledge production in collaborations where the actors have different knowledge and interests. Building on boundary object theory, a conceptual framework is developed to analyse knowledge exchange in two stakeholder-led collaborations to make fishery management plans. The framework introduces boundary spaces to conceptualise the dynamic interaction between objects and activities. Within boundary spaces, actors can share, transfer and translate their knowledge, and common understanding can emerge. The collaborations analysed aimed to produce management plans for the Nephrops (Nephrops norvegicus) fishery in the North Sea and the boarfish (Capros aper) fishery in the Northeast Atlantic. Several boundary spaces were identified in each collaboration. During the production phase, the emerging management plans took on multiple representations as boundary objects that facilitated knowledge exchange. Activities were essential, as these created entry points for different actors to become part of the boundary spaces where they could contribute to knowledge production. Fishing industry representatives in the North Sea Advisory Council and the Pelagic Advisory Council played key roles in initiating and coordinating activities. The case studies demonstrate that Advisory Councils take on pro-active roles in initiatives that aim to expand the knowledge base for European fisheries management. Direct engagement was instrumental to create ownership of the problem addressed in the various collaborative settings that emerged during the management plan initiatives.

To shed more light on the position of women in tourism, in this thesis I examined the ways women in Zanzibar have incorporated working in tourism in their daily lives by comparing those who work in tourism as entrepreneurs with employees, working in hotels and restaurants. Conceptually my thesis is framed within Weick’s theory of enactment, with special focus on the concept of sensemaking. I used this particular framework to understand how women either reinforce or resist gendered identities by constantly ‘enacting’ their environments. My research showed that the position of women in Zanzibar is highly influenced by religion, marital status and level of education. However, since women make sense of the environment in different ways, perceive different opportunities and constraints, and on the basis of these make different choices, I recommended that programmes customised according to the differences among women should be developed. Second, I argued that these tailor-made programmes should focus on four interventions: education and training, working conditions, self-organisation and microcredit.

De betekenis van groene zelf-governance : analyse van verschillende vormen van dynamiek in de praktijk

This study examines practices in which groups of local people (citizens’ initiatives) take the lead in natureconservation and landscape management projects. In three cases studies the significance of green selfgovernancewas examined by studying knock-on effects: the relations with related practices and therelations between practices and structures at the regime level, such as institutional working practices andpolicies. The bonds and dynamics in these relations – between green self-governance practices, betweengreen self-governance practices and related practices, and between green self-governance practices and theregime level – were found to be considerable. The actual level of influence is hard to determine because thedynamics play out within a changing context. An important lesson for the interaction between citizens andgovernment is that both can learn by working together
