The project aims to create around 10’000 jobs along the aquaculture value chain in five governorates (Behera, Kafr-El-Sheikh, Sharkia, El-Fayoum, El-Mineya), in a pro-poor approach and focusing on production and retailing. Secondary benefits concern more ecological and water conserving production techniques; a more favourable institutional, policy and regulatory framework; as well as improved nutritional health of low-income consumers, given that fish constitutes the cheapest animal protein available. Outcomes (objectives): (1) Reinforce profitability of aquaculture producers and create 9’142 jobs in the governorates of Bhera, El-Fayoum, Kafr-El-Sheikh and Sharkia. (2) Create 900 jobs in the aquaculture retailing sector (for women). (3) Increase farmed fish production in El-Mineya governorate and create 250 jobs; Pilot and disseminate methods to decrease environmental and water utilization impact of aquaculture. (4) Facilitate efficient and sustainable value chains in the aquaculture sector and optimal institutional, policy and regulatory frameworks.
