Philippines - Fisheries, Coastal Resources, and Livelihood (FishCORAL) – September 2021
On days when the weather permits, the fish is dried under the sun as has been done traditionally. However, the weather in the region changes constantly making it a problem on rainy and cloudy days. It is at these times that the solar dryer is a very helpful tool. Though it takes longer for the fish to dry, it allows the production to continue.
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.
