Pre-Assessment / Needs Assessment
During the FIP development stage, the fishery's performance is evaluated and stakeholders are recruited to participate in the project.
View the Environmental Rapid Assessment Methodology here.
FIPs that meet one or more of the FisheryProgress criteria for increased risk of forced labor and human trafficking must complete a risk assessment of indicators that align with the Human Rights Code of Conduct (a subset of indicators in the Social Responsibility Assessment (SRA) Tool). The completed risk assessment must be submitted as part of the FIP’s first annual report.
FIPs that do not meet the FisheryProgress criteria for increased risk of forced labor and human trafficking are not required to complete a risk assessment, but are strongly encouraged to do so. All risk assessments reported on through FisheryProgress.org must use the below template.

A scoping document summarizes the results of the needs assessment and recommends strategies for addressing the fishery's challenges.
