    Abstract

    Fisheries management has evolved in the last few decades from a system of top-down management of resources, to a focus on community driven programmes through bottom- up initiatives. This study focuses on analysis of participation strategy adopted by a donor- funded project of community- based management within small- scale fisheries of Kaledupa, Indonesia. Research involved semi- structured interviews with a variety of stakeholders, in an attempt to address the effectiveness of the strategy. The ability to gain consensus and collective action within communities while spanning the cultural and ethnic divide on the island is assessed, through this project as ineffective at this stage. This project illustrates communication break- down between the project co-ordinators and the advisors and the lack of attention to the heterogeneous nature of the two varying ethnic communities on the island. The inability to effectively exploit the local knowledge has resulted in a project, which is not based on local circumstances and thus indicates that long-term success is likely to fail, due to a lack in legitimate management. The main cause of this is identified as time constraints under which such donor- funded projects are subject, these are not in line with those agendas which are based in local reality, but are driven by external processes such as the ability to meet targets.
