Our Vision & Mission

We envision a world where inclusive and integrated management of coastal and marine ecosystems generate long-term benefits to nature and people.

Our Mission is to provide technical, policy and extension support to actors in government, private sector and civil society through capacity building, research, networking and project development in fisheries and coastal ecosystem governance. 

What We Do

Our approach to fisheries governance is through research, multi-stakeholder engagements and policy advocacy for sustainable fisheries management.
We adopt integrated and participatory approaches to coastal landscape issues and work at multiple scales, deploying a wide range of tools.
We design and implement sustainable livelihood interventions geared towards reducing poverty and food insecurity in communities we work.
Our gender programme area addresses gender needs by conducting gender assessment and analyses; development of gender mainstreaming strategy.
