The present intervention concerns the Inland Lakes Integrated Development and Management Support Project. It falls within the priority areas of the national poverty reduction strategy. The project should help build national capacities in the sustainable management of fish resources, ensure a lasting build up of fish stocks over 25,000 hectares of water bodies, protect 35,000 hectares of catchment areas and induce an additional annual production of 10,000 tonnes of fish and 1,000 of pigs and poultry. At the economic level, the project should also generate savings in foreign exchange with the gradual substitution of fish imports estimated at RWF 1.8 billion annually. The project comprises three main components, namely: (i) institutional capacity building; (ii) improvement of production and marketing; and (iii) project management. The main expected outputs are: (i) building of the institutional capacities of fishery sub-sector operators, NGOs, fishery administration and local communities involved; (ii) integrated management of 25,000 hectares of water bodies and protection of 35,000 hectares of watersheds; (iii) increase in the national fish production by 10,000 tonnes per year, associated animals by 1,000 tonnes per year and the diversification of the activities of fishermen; and (iv) improvement of basic infrastructure, equipment and services.
The sector goal of the project is to contribute to strengthening food security. The specific objective is to improve the incomes of actors in the fishery sub-sector in a sustainable manner.
The project beneficiaries are the populations of the 17 riparian districts estimated at 1.3 million inhabitants, of whom 0.7 million are women, that is, 54%. The latter are generally poor and highly disadvantaged in terms of access to basic social services. In general, households are vulnerable but more particularly 57% of them are headed by women and minors.
