Junior Advisor – Sustainable Fisheries Management at GIZ

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is the implementing agency of the Federal Republic of Germany for technical and international cooperation. It offers flexible, sustainable and effective solutions in political, economic and social change processes. Most of the work of GIZ is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). GIZ also operates on behalf of other German ministries as well as public and private bodies in Germany and abroad. These include the European Commission, the United Nations, the World Bank and governments of other countries.

The overall objectives of the “Fish for Food Security in Zambia” (F4F) Project are to support the development of the aquaculture sector in selected districts in Luapula Province and to sustainably rehabilitate dam-based fisheries, including the strengthening of dam committees for a responsible management of fisheries in selected districts in Eastern Province. Herewith, and in respect to food and nutrition security, the project aims at increasing the sustainable production of fish and thus the availability of fish products for food-insecure households. The increase in fish production will also positively contribute to increased incomes for actors in respective value chains in the intervention areas. Primary beneficiaries are male and female fish farmers as well as fisher folks and dam committee members operating and managing dam fisheries, who will directly benefit from better access to fish and higher incomes. Further value chain actors (e.g. hatcheries, fish processors, trader, dealer, and retailer) as well as consumers from non fish-producing households within the areas of intervention are likely to gain indirect monetary and/or dietary benefits as more and affordable fish products are being handled in the markets.
