African Fisheries and Aquaculture Investment Partnership
"We are a working group of the Partnership for African Fisheries, a programme of the NEPAD Agency, dedicated to increasing the contribution made by Africa’s fisheries and aquaculture sectors to economic growth, food security and job creation.
"Our belief is that a sustainable fisheries and aquaculture industry that contributes to growth is not only attainable, but essential.
"Our vision is that growth will be driven by investment. Our mission is to bring together influential partners to identify the opportunities and constraints to investment in the sector. We believe that doing so will radically increase levels of investment in the sector. Established in January 2011, we are an informal partnership led by the Development Bank of Southern Africa. Founding members include The University of Greenwich, the NEPAD Agency and The Global Program on Fisheries, based at the World Bank. Membership requires no contribution, other than a commitment to exploring the possibilities offered by the fisheries and aquaculture sectors in Africa."
