Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture Project (AFAPII) goal is to ‘contribute to improved household income, food and nutrition security through sustainable and climate resilient fisheries and aquaculture’. AFAP has successfully demonstrated that small-scale inland fisheries can significantly contribute to better rural livelihoods through increased incomes and improved food and nutrition security. Based on AFAP’s experience, Government of Angola (GoA) has expressed the desire to make the inland fisheries sub-sector an avenue through which rural livelihoods can be sustainably improved.
AFAPII has three main components:
Component 1: Sustainable Inland Fisheries and Small-Scale Aquaculture Production Systems. It focuses
on expanding AFAP’s successful interventions in climate-resilient fisheries and aquaculture production strategies.
Component 2: Business Enterprise, Market Linkages and Climate-Resilient Infrastructure Development. It focuses on both for fisheries and aquaculture. It aims to support component 1 with the necessary infrastructure, market linkages and entrepreneurial capacities to deliver quality fisheries and aquaculture products from source to the consumer.
Component 3: Institutional Strengthening, Policy Support and Project Management. It focuses on i) provision of targeted capacity building to institutions responsible for overseeing and supporting AFAP-2 activity implementation and ii) providing overall AFAP-2 coordination, planning and implementation, financial management and control, procurement, Monitoring and Evaluation, knowledge management, and progress reporting.
