WorldFish and partners project on sustainable transformation of Egypt’s aquaculture market system
June 10, 2016 Editor 0
The Sustainable Transformation of Egypt’s Aquaculture Market System (STREAMS) project aims to increase production of inexpensive, nutritious and safe fish from sustainable aquaculture systems to help improve the health and nutrition of Egypt’s resource-poor while creating employment and increasing incomes along the aquaculture value chain.
Launched in February 2016, STREAMS will increase the participation of Egypt’s underprivileged socioeconomic segments in the country’s fast-growing aquaculture sector while also making fish more affordable and accessible. Increased availability and consumption of fish can reduce Egypt’s high rates of childhood stunting, undernutrition and obesity.
STREAMS is funded by the Swiss government. It builds on the significant gains realized in sustainably transforming Egypt’s aquaculture market system through the Improving Employment and Incomes through the Development of Egypt’s Aquaculture Sector (IEIDEAS) project. It is managed and led by WorldFish and implemented by CARE and the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation.
