Présentation

* Objectifs : To promote youth engagement in improving their livelihoods through the provision of viable livelihood alternatives in the fisheries sector.

* Activités : Undertook a comprehensive fisheries market survey with 100 individuals organized into focus groups, emphasizing the participation of youth. •Conducted two training sessions in Eyl and Hobyo for a total of 30 participants (including fishermen’s association members, unemployed youth and female representatives) to build capacity on business management, supervision of fish landing facilities and targeting fishing communities and their organizations. •Rehabilitated two sections of road between the landing site and market (totalling 9.3 km) and flattened 150 m of road between the fish marketing and receiving station. •Renovated the Eyl fish market and equipped it with an ice machine, cold store and plate freezer and generator procured under the project. •Established a public-private partnership to run the rehabilitated fish market and freezer ; some 15 beneficiaries received training on the running of cooperatives, public-private partnerships and marketing. •Rehabilitated the Eyl Marine School in response to the region’s general lack of vocational training capacity in boat building and repair, engine maintenance and fish processing, among other fishing topics.
