The project to support the Lake Tanganyika Integrated Regional Development Programme (PRODAP) complies with the priorities of the national poverty reduction strategies, the fisheries development framework plan, the code of conduct for responsible fisheries and the strategic action plan for the sustainable management of the Lake. It will help to build national and regional capacities for sustainable management of fishery resources, replenish fish stocks in a sustainable manner in the currently overexploited areas, protect 200,000 ha of catchment areas, contribute to the additional production of 51,500 tonnes of fish, and increase the value of processed fish by 25%. The project consists of four components, namely: (A) Institutional Capacity Building; (B) Fisheries Development and Environmental Protection; (C) Infrastructure Rehabilitation and Local Development; and (D) Project Management. The total cost of the project is estimated at US$ 68.44 million, or UA 46.20 million, exclusive of tax and customs duty.
