Project Summary:
This project aims to improve the livelihoods of 1,500 small-scale fishers in the Comoros whilst reducing pressure on fisheries and enabling effective management of 350 hectares of coral reefs, conserving marine biodiversity. A replicable, locally-led marine management model developed with ten communities on the island of Anjouan will incentivise adaptive fisheries management. Additional activities will add value to catches and increase agricultural production, diversifying and improving livelihoods. Best practices will be shared with government and partners, supporting replication nationwide.
