Community Development Project in 70 Inland Fishing Communities

Fishing communities around lakes, rivers and newly created fish farms in the provinces of Luanda, Bengo, Kwanza Norte and Malange are receiving support to develop the local fishing trade in a sustained and sustainable manner. Community development runs hand in hand with economic development, as ADPP collaborates with IPA (Institute of Artisanal Fishing and Aquaculture), the Ministry of Fisheries, and all relevant local authorities.

A rapid diagnosis of the situation in 60 communities across the four provinces was made in October 2017. This research demonstrated the potential for development, despite the current precarious nature of the fishing trade. Among the problems identified were low stock levels in rivers and lagoons, and reduced access to traditional fishing grounds as more land is built upon. A lack of basic infrastructures such as transport, health provision, basic sanitation, markets, warehouses and processing plants compound the problem. By the end of 2017, the project had recruited and engaged staff including the overall project coordinator, three provincial coordinators and 11 of the 14 local project leaders. Work then began on finding Community Agents, locating literacy trainers and forming the first groups of learners, establishing the Community Action Grous, and preparing community development plans for each community in the project.

The following are some of the key goals for the project:

• 4 provinces
• 70 communities
• 70 Community Health Agents
• 10,000 literacy learners
• 160 literacy teachers
• 25 savings groups
