Philippines - Fisheries, Coastal Resources, and Livelihood (FishCORAL) – September 2021
Rosita Lubres, a 46-year-old local of Jiabong, Samar. A regular day for her is making mussel (tahong) crackers and looking after her mussel farm as people steal from their property. Typhoons and red tides have been the most common problem. She aspires to buy a raft which will make harvesting mussels easier. Through the programme, she is looking forward to learning more so that she can improve her conditions. Once the products are finished, she takes them with her colleague to a shop Catbalogan City. This is where trade is done and locally made products are displayed and sold.
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.
