Developing Communities in Mozambique

In July 2003, AFSC photographer Terry Foss traveled to Africa to document the progress of several AFSC programs on the continent. His trip included a visit to AFSC's Recovery to Development Program in Mozambique's Manica Province.

Experiences from Three Marine Community Fisheries

Conflict over access to natural resources is increasingly common in Cambodia.  This report examines the roots of a conflict over fishing grounds in Cambodia’s Kompong Som Bay.   The report provides case histories of the conflict between trawler operators and traditional fishers, and the struggle to safeguard resources.  The true stories of the communities are presented in a simple and accessible way.

This report was commissioned by AFSC and the Fisheries Action Coalition Team (FACT).
