Project General Description

The Agriculture Sector Development and Marine Aquaculture Development Study is designed by the Government of Seychelles (GOS) with the support of the African Development Bank Group. This project includes three main components, namely: (i) preparation of an Agriculture Sector Development Project (ASDP) which should involve a review of the agriculture sector contributing to the development of strategies to implement the agriculture sector policy, and culminating in the preparation of ASDP, and (ii) preparation of a Marine Aquaculture Development Plan (MADP) involving a review of the fisheries sector contributing to the elaboration of a marine aquaculture policy and strategy and culminating in the preparation of the MADP. The MADP should have two sub-outputs: (a) framework and guidelines to the GOS which should allow sustainable development of marine aquaculture in Seychelles; and (b) an investment package (fiscal incentives and information) to investors and attract strong investments in the sector.

Project Objectives

The principal objectives of this project are to: (i) develop appropriate strategies for the implementation of the agriculture sector policy and prepare a viable agriculture sector development project for financing; and, (ii) elaborate a marine aquaculture development policy and strategy and develop a comprehensive development plan which would guide and regulate responsible development and management of marine aquaculture in the Seychelles.

Beneficiaries

The main beneficiaries of the project are: the Government of Seychelles, economic operators as well as actors in charge of agricultural sector development and marine aquaculture.
