The Fisheries and Aquaculture Sector Support Project (PSPA) falls within the scope of the Gabon Government’s PRSP (interim document of June 2003), reflected in the Fisheries and Environment Sector Program (PSFE), supported by all the development partners whose Bank. The minor investments earmarked under the project should help test the application of the reforms in the field through key activities among the actors of the fisheries and aquaculture sub-sector. The main activities concerned are: (i) improvement and strengthening of the institutional and regulatory framework of the fisheries and aquaculture sub-sector; (ii) putting in place of basic infrastructure to promote the development of artisanal and aquaculture fishing; and (iii) building the capacities of the staff of the fisheries and aquaculture administration, as well as communities that derive their livelihood from this activity. The project should provide permanent and temporary employment opportunities to an estimated 12,000 female operators out of about 21,700 actors in the sub-sector.
The sector goal of the fisheries and aquaculture sector support project is to contribute to the diversification of the Gabonese economy through the sustainable management of forestry, fisheries and environmental resources. The specific objective of the project is to improve the conditions of fish production as a means for increasing output and incomes.
The project beneficiaries comprise a total of 21,500 operators in the subsector made up of at least 7,500 artisanal fishermen, 500 fish farmers and about 12,000 female operators from other sections of the sub-sector who are essentially processors, fishmongers and traders. In addition to these operators, the project aims to promote the integration of about 1,500 youths interested in the fisheries and aquaculture sub-sector who find it difficult to do so. Also, in accordance with the goals of the PSFE, the project will provide support to the fisheries administration through the training of about 135 workers and executives of the General Directorate of Fisheries and Aquaculture (DGPA).
