Project Description:

The Southwest Indian Ocean Fisheries Project (SIOFP) is one of several inter-linked projects being prepared by the World Bank and the UNDP in response to country requests for assistance in better managing the living resources and habitat of their shared marine ecosystems. Consistent with the GEF Operational Strategy, an ecosystems approach is being proposed to assist the countries in the assessment and management of the two large marine ecosystems (LMEs) that make up the West Indian Ocean, namely, the Agulhas Current LME and the Somali Current LME. The SIOFP is aimed at building the capacity of the countries and collecting the needed information on the LMEs so that the countries may make an informed decision to develop a management strategy for the offshore living resources of the two LMEs that extend to the 200 Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ) of Mozambique, Madagascar, Comoros, Kenya, Tanzania, and South Africa. The complexity of the situation and the subsequent need to divide the work into logical pieces for implementation requires different operations, which together will form a LME program for the West Indian Ocean.
