Women who fish for a living are to benefit from new UN guidelines on sustainable fishing.

Worldwide, women play a key role in the small-scale fisheries and in some developing countries make up the majority of the work force.

The guidelines launched by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) are aimed at promoting food security and poverty eradication.
