Lasting inclusive and sustainable development of the aquaculture sector requires an institutional and policy context that enables and facilitates its success. To achieve this goal, MYSAP is supporting the Department of Fisheries to draft a first comprehensive national strategy, the National Aquaculture Development Plan (NADP).
The NADP will incorporate recommendations made throughout a series of stakeholder consultations with the public and private sector, academia and civil society. The consultations foresee a strong representation of smallholder farmers and other SMEs, while also involving actors working in related policy areas, such as environment, social inclusiveness, labour conditions, gender relations, trade, disaster risk management, food security and nutrition.
Furthermore, MYSAP will conduct trainings and advisory activities for technical experts and executives in ministries and regulatory institutions to support the creation of an environment that promotes sustainable aquaculture development
