Locating the context of fisheries in disaster management plans and need of integrating block chain technologies for better fisheries governance and social good


Author(s): Arpita Sharma

Abstract: This paper locates context of fisheries with reference to disaster management in National and State Disaster Management Plans (DMPs) as well as other fisheries specific frameworks. Based on this, it recommends integration of disaster management in national and state level fisheries frame work sand integration of fisheries in state DMPs. Modern technological tools of communication device, internet and mobile apps needs to be given focus. New tools like embracing block chain technologies for disaster management are needed because if fisheries registrations and certifications are moved to block chain, dependency on paper documents can go away and be of help during post disaster management. Without paper files, ownerships are not established leading to conflicts and mismanagement and even unrest. Ownership of property represented by a block chain token can enable simple, error-free, and non-repudiable transfer of ownership leading to better fisheries governance and social good.
