Overview of position
  • The 5 year project, upgrading the fishery sector in South Sudan, funded by the govt. of Canada, began in June 2014 & is scheduled to conclude in November 2020. The ultimate outcome of the project is to “increase food security of children, men & women in targeted regions of South Sudan”. The project intends to achieve this outcome through the following 3 interlinked intermediate outcomes:
  1. Increased quantity of both fresh fish, as well as fish products produced by fisher folk, is available for consumption in targeted states.
  2. Increased small scale business development related to the fishery sector by women in selected fishing communities.
  3. Improved fish resource management & delivery of services to the fishery sector by targeted institutions.
  • The vast & highly productive Nile river ecosystem in the Republic of South Sudan (RSS) harbors a significant, but unknown, amount of fish & supports a simple fisheries value chain that has the potential to create employment & positively impact food security in South Sudan.
  • An inland artisanal fishery exists around lakes, rivers & floodplains with fisher folk mainly using traditional fishing methods that limit their ecological impact. Much of these fisheries are seasonal with fisher folk dividing their time & labour between fishing, crop farming & livestock. These fisher folk & their fishing communities are amongst the poorest & least resilient social group to livelihood shocks & make up a significant part of the severely food insecure households in the country.
  • This project addresses fishing communities & actors along the entire fisheries value chain, improving food security (in rural households, in particular), creating jobs & setting South Sudan’s fishery sector on a path of sustainable growth.
  • The project has resulted in a larger number of deliverables, in terms of individuals trained on skills of relevance to the fishery sector & business development. The project has also helped establish multiple business associations and cooperatives. The project has also distributed equipment & constructed infrastructure to support a robust fisheries value chain in Central & Eastern Equatoria states.
  • The project has also worked closely with ministries responsible for the fisheries sector’s management & development, to build capacity. Through its monitoring activities, the project collected a vast amount of information, mainly in terms of quantities delivered. Nonetheless, anecdotal evidence suggests that the project is also achieving considerable impact, in terms of income generated by fisher folk, traders & retailers along the value chain, as well as food security objectives. Nonetheless, a systemic approach to the collection of analysis of data is needed to better ascertain project outcome level results.
