Angola - Fisheries Sector Support Project (FSSP) - ESMP Summary

20-Jun-2012

The Government of Angola (GoA) through the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries (MARDAF) has requested the Bank to support the Fisheries Sector Support Project (FSSP) with the objective of minimizing post-harvest fish losses, increase the value of fish traded and enhance safety at sea for artisanal fishers living in four coastal communities (Egipto Praia, Gilco, Sumbe and Yembe) in Angola. This will ultimately increase food security and improve the socio-economic well-being of the artisanal fishers through increase in household income. The overall project will in turn contribute to the Government’s efforts in reducing poverty and in accelerating economic growth on a sustainable basis in Angola. Strengthening capacity of institutions responsible for fishery management to monitor fishery activities will ensure sustainable management of the fish stock.
