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.
The sector goal of the project is to contribute to poverty reduction in the Lake Tanganyika basin. More specifically, the project aims at (i) improving social and health conditions in the Lake Tanganyika basin, and (ii) improving the food situation of the people.
The project will give priority to the poor and vulnerable communities, whose annual average incomes are estimated at US$ 150. These are mainly 245,000 operators (45,000 fishermen and 200,000 fishmongers, women fish smokers, input suppliers, makers of dugout canoes, labourers, etc.) who are expected to participate in the management of fisheries, protection of the fisheries ecosystem, and improvement of the exploitation and processing conditions of the entire fisheries sub-sector. The project will also benefit the various administrations and NGOs, the intervention capacities of which will be strengthened.
