New Ventures: Mozambique

New Ventures: Mozambique

Blue Ventures is excited to be joining forces with ZSLAMA (Associação do Meio Ambiente), Bioclimate, CORDIO and other partners on the Our Sea Our Life Project (OSOL), project in Mozambique.

The coastal population of Mozambique experiences many of the same challenges and threats to marine resources as the communities Blue Ventures works with on the opposite side of the Mozambique channel, in Madagascar. The OSOL project works with vulnerable communities to improve the resilience of coastal ecosystems and community well-being. OSOL facilitates the development of locally managed fisheries by creating community-led management committees, developing sustainable financing mechanisms and supporting Village Savings and Loan Associations to invest in alternative small-scale businesses diversifying incomes and reducing stress on the marine environment.

Blue Ventures will draw on experience working with small scale fisheries to support the partners in a number of ways; namely supporting Bioclimate on their work with reef closures and octopus fisheries management and working with CORDIO to apply mobile phones to monitor small-scales fisheries.
