Project Title: MOZ - Support to the Fisheries Sector of Mozambique 2013-2017
Short Description:

Fisheries authorities strengthened in their abilities; to promote the development and management of small-scale fishing and aquaculture activities that have high potential to improve food security and nutrition in fish to the local population, and to ensure sustainable and viable use of aquatic resources.

Long Description

Development objective

The development objective of the Fisheries Master Plan seeks the following effects and priorities:

  • strengthened contribution of the sector in improving food security and nutrition in fish to the population;
  • improved living conditions of artisanal fishing communities and small-scale fish farmers;
  • increased contribution of the industrial and small-scale fisheries and aquaculture for the achievement of national economic and social development goals, and
  • increased net contribution of the sector to the balance of payments.

This is in the context of a public sector administration to be better able to pursue these ends and sustainability of fishery resources and aquatic ecosystems.

Target group: The Mozambican population

Purpose

Fisheries authorities strengthened in their abilities; to promote the development and management of small-scale fishing and aquaculture activities that have high potential to improve food security and nutrition in fish to the local population, and to ensure sustainable and viable use of aquatic resources.

 

Target group: The Mozambican population, including people who depend on the production, processing and marketing of fishery products as their main livelihood.

Other beneficiaries: The technical and management staff of the Fisheries Administration

The programme is organized in components that contribute to the realization of its unique purpose, namely:

A. The component that gathers the assistance to the two institutions directly responsible for promoting        economic and social development of communities dependent on artisanal fishing and small-scale  aquaculture – IDPPE and INAQUA. Its purpose is thus formulated: Supported efforts to increase sustainable  small scale production of fish for domestic consumption and export;

B. The component that covers the assistance to the two institutions most directly responsible for ensuring the  sustainable exploitation of fisheries resources and aquaculture – IIP and ADNAP. Its objective: Support to the  sustainable management of fisheries resources accessible to small-scale fishing;

C. The components that provides support for planning and monitoring the level of the fisheries sector. This is  focused on DNEPP of the Ministry of Fisheries. Its objective: Strengthened capacity for planning and  monitoring of the sector;

D. The component that contains the phasing out support to patrol the EEZ frequented by commercial fleets (N  / P "Antillas Reefer"). Under this component the actions leading to the creation of a capacity to support  decentralized monitoring of artisanal fisheries in the districts is also found. Its objective: Enhanced  surveillance of Mozambique's EEZ;

E. The component that supports the sector in cross-cutting issues – prevention of HIV/AIDS, gender,  governance, culture and environment – which are important in the pursuit of the sector purpose. Its objective:  Improved sector response in relation to cross-cutting issues, and

F. The component dedicated to the coordination of programme implementation and monitoring. Its objective:  Programme coordination
