Philippines - Fisheries, Coastal Resources, and Livelihood (FishCORAL) - September 2021
Fishermen and shop owners from neighboring towns gather to purchase fresh milkfish from the fish pens. Each one has their own motorboat and containers for transporting their purchase which they take to bigger towns and cities in Leyte and Samar and sell.
The overall goal of the project is to reduce poverty in poor coastal communities, improve food and nutrition security and increase household. The fishing communities' capacity to sustainably manage fishery and coastal resources is built and ensures sustainable engagement in diversified livelihood activities.
More than 180,000 poor households living in coastal areas will benefit from this IFAD-funded project.
