Philippines - Fisheries, Coastal Resources, and Livelihood (FishCORAL) – September 2021
Inday Ruperta Gagarin lays out the fish to dry under the sun. In the background, the solar dryer which she uses on rainy and cloudy days. Drying the fish in the solar dryer takes longer, but it allows the production to continue. “We really relied on the sun, but now, even when it’s raining, we can use the solar dryers. The flies can’t get to the fish and the dried fish meat has a better consistency.” Ruperta shares.
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.
