"The World Forum of Fisher Peoples (WFFP) is a mass-based social movement of small-scale fisher people from across the world, founded on 21 November 1997 in New Delhi, India, by a number of mass-based organisations from the Global South... WFFP has built strong alliances and solidarity between fisher peoples across the world (both internally and with other organisations) and succeeded in placing the human rights of fisher peoples on the agenda of UN Conferences of the Parties (Climate Change and Convention on Biological Diversity ), World Commission on Food Security (CFS) and at the level of the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO). Through alliances with other organisations (see section 4.2), WFFP was instrumental in advocating for and securing the implementation of the first Global Conference on Small-scale Fisheries (co-hosted by the FAO and co-funded by the Government of Norway)."
