Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Small-scale Producers and Workers: Perspectives from Thailand's Seafood Supply Chain [open pdf - 0B]
From the Summary: "National seafood exporters have put in place several preventive measures to respond to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. Some companies go beyond their factories to support and prevent the risks of an outbreak in workers' households and communities. However, while some companies may have shared COVID-19 educational materials to some of their suppliers, there is still a lack of additional support to their suppliers' facilities and fishing vessels, which are still at risk of an outbreak due to lack of proper preventive measures. Although the interviews focused on fishery and seafood workers, and some of the largest seafood companies in the Thailand, the results only provide a snapshot of the complicated and evolving situation during the pandemic. The briefing note aims to reflect perspectives on the ground and highlight some notable examples and remaining gaps. It also provides a set of important recommendations for seafood exporters/vessel owners and global buyers/retailers."
