  3. MORNING SESSION

  4. Feedback from Day One
  5. #ict4fisheries2016 Day 1 Recap: The 'V' in #VGSSF should not be present. It is an important document and framework based in human rights
  6. #ICT4Fisheries2016 Day2 starts: Broad agreement that V of @UNFAO #VGSSF shouldnt be there –important binding framework based on human rights
  7. #ict4fisheries2016 Day1 Recap:Demos from yesterday,used ICTs as entry point to the #VGSSF but still moved towards social innovation & change
  8. #ICT4Fisheries2016 recap day1: All tech presented uses ICTs as entry points, with ripple effects towards #socialinnovation & #socialchange
  9. Seeking Solutions: How can technology offer solutions to some of the challenges faced by small-scale fishers and in working in small-scale fisheries? (Knowledge Café Methodology) – Discussion points:
    Access to tech & tech support | Literacy | Power and benefits (short- and long-term) | Trust & legitimacy | Scaling solutions | Other challenges in working with SSF communities
  10. #ICT4Fisheries2016 Day 2! Today we focus on #solutions to #ICT4Fisheries challenges: literacy, accessibility, scalability & gaining trust
  11. #ICT4Fisheries2016 Seeking #techsolutions to challenges faced by #SSF, considering access literacy benefits power legitimacy scaling & more
  12. #ICT4Fisheries2016 Jennifer O'Leary: "hard to really understand how modern tech works -can feel like black box. Trust&transparency critical"
  13. #ICT4Fisheries2016 Q: #literacy How to reach those who dont have android phones or cannot read and write? ... #ICT4fisheries #ICT4D
  14. #ICT4Fisheries2016 #literacy: @openfn "use text messaging surveys/phone calls in local language where Q's answered by pressing 1,2 3"
  15. 1/2 #ICT4Fisheries2016: Sam Petersen @WWFSouthAfrica: "#scaling means different things, from replication to scaling up into policy ..."
  16. 2/2 #ICT4Fisheries2016: Sam Petersen @WWFSouthAfrica: " ...or deep-scaling to really feed back into an iterative learning process"
  17. #ICT4Fisheries2016 Vincent Fautrel of @CTAflash:"doesnt work to start ICT project &only bring in business #sustainability aspect later ..."
  18. #ICT4Fisheries2016: 2/2 KevonAndrews of #mFisheries: "#Infographics & storytelling help engage users with different functionalities" #ICT4D
  19. #ict4fisheries2016 What is the value of the data collected by fishers? Can they sell their own data to 3rd parties?
  20. #ICT4Fisheries2016 building trust with #SSF is vital. @olpie101: You need to fill an unmet need otherwise it won't be adopted
  21. Participants discuss solutions to #ICT accessibility issues. How can tech support, 4G & smartphone access be scaled? #ICT4Fisheries2016 https://t.co/vJb6LQ6eGw

  22. #ICT4Fisheries2016 Petrus vanderLinde @CoastalLive: "Possible to use #apps on closed #wifi networks without having to use #cellular signal?"
  23. #ICT4Fisheries2016 1/3 Abongile Ngqongwa @DAFF_Fisheries: "Approach to assisting #SSF communities to #access #tech very important ..."
  24. #ICT4Fisheries2016 2/3 Abongile Ngqongwa @DAFF_Fisheries: "... 1. First introduce idea of using tech, 2. Develop tech WITH community ... "
  25. #ICT4Fisheries2016 3/3 Abongile Ngqongwa @DAFF_Fisheries: "...3. Once tech developed, no burden of training – community owns the system"
  26. @abalobi_app @openfn #ICT4Fisheries2016 in response to IVR options, check out @engageSPARK . JSON api for IVR surveys in the works!
  27. #ICT4Fisheries2016 Robin: "ICTs are not a 1 solution fits all, a solution that works in one location may not work in another"
  28. #ICT4Fisheries2016 Closing the feedback loop is essential. Logging data without providing feedback in return can be disempowering.
  29. There is a need to train community members with the skills of tech support in order to promote sustainability #ICT4Fisheries2016
  30. 'Community members who are engaged with #ICT could act as "ICT champions" in new areas' #fisherexchanges #ICT4Fisheries2016 @BlueVentures
  31. Long term funding is vital to the success of #ICT4Fisheries, otherwise projects will fail when grants end #sustainability #ICT4Fisheries2016
  32. #ICT4Fisheries2016 feedback on #access: Best process to promote access is for fishers to teach fishers – human connectivity key! #SSF #ICT4D https://t.co/IzsF7kSDNa
