Présentation
City of Chabahar is the capital of Chabahar country of the Sistan and Baluchistan province of Iran. Chabahar is located southern part of the country boarding with Afghanistan and Pakistan and is the closest and best access point to the Indian Ocean. Sistan and Baluchistan province however is ranked the last relative to other Iranian provinces in terms of human development indices and characterized by high unemployment and criminal activities including drug trafficking. Increasing employment as well as income generation opportunities to the local population, particularly youth, therefore is of utmost importance for Chabahar.

In this context, UNIDO will undertake a project aiming to promote integration of the fishery and ancillary industries in Chabahar to regional/global market through building capacity of local institutions, upgrading enterprises in terms of quality, productivity recourse efficiency etc. and enhancing market access. Fishery and ancillary industries, with 24,196 jobs, are among the very few industries with potential to offer employment and job opportunities in the region.
