Nampula Artisanal Fisheries Project (Mozambique)


Titre : Nampula Artisanal Fisheries Project (Mozambique)

Pays : Mozambique

Durée : 1993 - 2001

Institution initiatrice : International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)

The project area covered the districts of Angoche and Moma on the coastal part of Nampula province. The demand for fish is high in the province but production is low. For communities in these areas, fishing is the main income-generating activity and fish provide an important source of nutrition in the local diet. The project’s goal was to improve levels of income, employment and food security in the area. It made credit available to help fishing communities buy equipment, and provided training in improved fishing techniques and processing technologies. Women, who traditionally do not have a role in the fishing industry in Mozambique , were encouraged to become involved in fish production, processing and marketing.

The project rehabilitated local roads to improve linkages between the fishing communities and markets and suppliers, and it constructed village water supplies and health care facilities. Improved access to rural infrastructures benefited everyone in the community, especially the most vulnerable, including women and children. About 138 km of roads were successfully rehabilitated, 122 water points in 42 communities were constructed and 20 health centres were rehabilitated.

The project also promoted policies designed to improve market efficiency. It tested and promoted new fishing techniques and processing methods appropriate to communities within the project area, and helped set up a system for monitoring fish stocks to ensure the sustainability of this resource.
