Foundation Ensemble invites organizations who, based on field work and experience, are addressing or aim to address the challenges of over exploitation of fisheries in Mozambique and also the effects of climate change in the sector. Fund will be disseminated to projects that aim at
- Improving the sustainability of the artisanal fisheries by improving for the long term fisheries data collection on a wide scale (for instance at protected area and/or provincial level).
- Reducing damaging and unsustainable fishing practices and improving fisheries management and enforcement around fishing methods, protected species, temporal and spatial closures such as sanctuaries, etc.
- Advocating in a participatory manner (with other stakeholders such as NGO’s, academia and fishermen representatives,…), at provincial and national level, to improve the legal framework and it’s implementation; increasing and diversifying income of coastal communities, in particular fishermen families, by promoting sustainable income generating activities (IGR), related to fishing, or not. Ideally, these IGR will contribute to build local buy-in to marine conservation.
