  • Offshore impacts to fisheries: practitioner guidance for social baselines
Calendar15 February 2023

Having a well-designed social baseline serves to shape the outcomes of offshore projects. In particular, it helps to enhance benefits for, and avoid or mitigate impacts to, fisheries and fishing communities.

This guidance contains information on key indicators, data collection tools and techniques, tips and a suite of case-studies from Ipieca members. It is designed to support practitioners in developing robust social baselines that:

  • Suitably characterize impacts to fisheries and associated stakeholders
  • Can be scaled to suit a variety of different offshore contexts and projects
  • Will stand up to institutional scrutiny
  • Reduce delays associated with the collection of incorrect data
  • Support efforts to avoid and/or minimize impacts on fisheries and associated communities
