USAID_Enhanced Coastal Fisheries in Bangladesh (ECOFISH-Bangladesh) - Quarterly Report_January to March 2017
- Enhanced Coastal Fisheries in Bangladesh (ECOFISH-Bangladesh) is a five-year initiative funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented jointly by WorldFish and the Department of Fisheries (DoF), Bangladesh. The project supports coastal fishing communities and other key stakeholders to improve the resilience of the Meghna River ecosystem and communities reliant on coastal fisheries. The project aims to enhance ecosystem resilience through the establishment of effective co-management in Hilsa shad (Tenualosa ilisha) fish sanctuaries. ECOFISH-Bangladesh will enhance community resilience by improving the savings, livelihoods and coping strategies of marginalized and extremely poor fisher folk, particularly women, thereby reducing their risk to climate-affected shocks and stresses.
