FAO picks Zambo Norte as pilot area for RFLP

Dipolog City (18 February) -- The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in collaboration with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic resources is going to implement the Regional Fisheries Livelihood Programme (RFLP) in 10 municipalities of Zamboanga del Norte, and the two cities of Dipolog and Dapitan.

In a press briefing held yesterday at Dakak Park in Dapitan City, RFLP regional manager Jose Parajua, who oversees the program implementation in the whole of Southeast Asia, said the RFLP seeks to strengthen "the capacity among participating small scale fisher communities towards improved livelihoods and sustainable fisheries resources management."

He also disclosed that a similar project is being implemented in Cambodia, Indonesia, Vietnam and East Timor.

RFLP aims to get the fisher communities actively involved in the management of marine resources, improvement of safety at sea and reduction of vulnerability to fishers and communities and improvement of fishery products and marketing chain. It also hopes to improve the marginal fishermen's access to microfinance services.

The local government units covered by the RFLP are the twin cities of Dipolog and Dapitan, and the municipalities of Rizal, Sibutad, Katipunan, Roxas, Manukan, Jose Dalman, Sindangan, Leon Postigo, Salug and Liloy.

The program, which costs the Spanish government through FAO $2.4 million, will be implemented in collaboration with BFAR, local government units, non-government organizations (NGOs) and other stakeholders for four years starting this year. (PIA) [top]
