Ugandan fisher woman Rehema Bavuma Namaganda from the World Forum of Fish Harvesters ando Fish Workers (WFF), is part of the international delegation that is working from the FAO headquarters in Rome, in the process of coming up with the final Guidelines that will ensure the permanence of fisherfolks in their original land.

Rehema participated on behalf of the fishing sector and fisherfolk in the press conference where they reported about the process that led to the FAO Guidelines on land tenure and use of other natural resources.

“Land grabbing needs to stop now because if we do not have land now, we will not have food tomorrow. Both dry lands and water streams are our source of water, therefore our food. Our food comes directly from water, our husbands fish and we smoke the fish”, she said.

Therefore, big investments in land, industrial fisheries by large corporations, as well as mining or hydroelectric projects have directly affected the food and therefore the life of millions of people in Africa and the world over, said Rehena Bavuma, member of the World Forum of Fish Harvesters and Fish Workers.
