Project Summary:
The growing coastal population in Northern Mozambique due to gas sector industries will increase seafood demand and pressure on this fragile marine biodiversity hotspot. Our Sea Our Life aims to improve socio-ecological resilience in a way that is pro-poor and gender inclusive. We will enhance a scalable model for sustainable solutions in two Cabo Delgado communities while fostering saving groups of vulnerable female fishers to farm bivalves as an alternative to illegal mosquito net fishing. A scalable gender-inclusive, pro-poor, multi-zonation and sustainably financed LMMA model for Mozambique, recovers threatened fish populations and mangrove, improving food security for 400 households in two Cabo Delgado communities.
