Providing Support to the Fishing Industry

Fishing is a major sector of Ghana’s economy which currently accounts for 4.5% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and estimated at $1 billion per annum. The sector provides employment, both directly and indirectly, for an estimated 2.5 million people.

CDO seeks to empower fishing communities through an integrated approach for Socio Economic Enhancement and Climate Resilience. CDO aims to improve the socio-economic livelihood within the fishing communities and to address long standing issues on declining fish stock, illicit fish practices, health concerns relating to fish processing, and social protection coverage for fisher folks.
