The Fisheries Sector Support Project will increase incomes of small scale fishers and traders (mostly women) through marked improvements in the fish landing and handling facilities thereby reducing post-harvest losses and improving quantity and quality of fish landed and traded. It will be implemented in coastal communities of Gilco, Yembe, Egipto Praia, Salinas Sumbe, Dambe Maria and Ambriz. Key expected outputs are: 4 landing sites constructed, 2 landing sites rehabilitated, 10 landing sites with additional works completed. 20 % reduction of Post-Harvest Losses. The project will cost UA 25.49 million and will be implemented over a 5 year period.
The project seeks to achieve a reduction of post-harvest losses, and an increase in fishers’ income through: (i) construction of new fish landing sites, (ii) enhancement of existing fish landing sites, (iii) sustainable management of the established fish landing sites and provision of sustainable marketing strategies which are all embedded in Pillars 1 and 2 of the CSP. The project outcomes and outputs address the areas mentioned in the broad economic and development strategy pursued by the Government, and address both pillars of the Bank’s Agriculture Sector Strategy through the development of fisheries Monitoring, Control and Surveillance (MCS) and landing site infrastructure, and through capacity building with respect to sustainable use of marine resources. The project will create employment with stable supplies of quality fishery products at the landing sites (through cold storage and availability of ice). More people will be engaged in processing and transformation of fishery products. Local trade will increase as a result of the aforementioned reasons. In total, an increase of 2,000 additional jobs directly related to the landing sites (management of the landing sites, increased trade, processing, marketing) are expected to be created. The FSSP will therefore build economic infrastructures (cold storage, ice machines, and processing areas), while sustainably managing this important natural resource.
The direct beneficiaries are the fishing population of over 10,000 at the project sites including women who constitute 80% of small scale fish processors and traders. The project will also be of benefit to ancillary trades such as boat repair, net mending, transportation, petty trade and overall economic activities in the project areas.
