OUR IMPACT

Goals

Empower and transform livelihoods of smallholder farms in West Africa through enhanced Sino-Afro application of knowledge, sustainable technologies and expertise in cage aquaculture

Objectives

i. Empower rural communities through sustainable cage culture ii. Enhanced employment, incomes and nutritional status of rural households through productive and sustainable cage farming in water bodies iii. Establish linkages and partnerships for improved rural entrepreneurship and livelihoods

Problems and Needs Analysis

Ghana and Nigeria are two prominent West African countries that depend on fisheries as major sources of animal protein. Both countries have numerous water-bodies, which have the potential for increasing aquaculture production through cage aquaculture, thereby reducing dependence on capture fisheries and the need to supplement the domestic fish catch with imported fish. Cage aquaculture will make it possible for rural farmers to grow fish without owning land, and enable them to do so in water-bodies where draining and seining would be impossible.

Intervention Strategy(ies)

Partnership with local private sector entities Demonstration of cage culture Capacity building through training, exchange visits and awareness creation Sino-Afro transfer of skills and knowledge
