Summary

To cope with the loss of aquatic biodiversity, PAEDE (Program to support Arable and Livestock Farmers for Local Development) formed the local community in sustainable techniques of agronomy and aims to raise the political, administrative and traditional awareness. The goal is to adopt fishing regulations, to incorporate coastal areas in protected areas and to facilitate the adoption of a law for their management.

Ubicación

Lake Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo

Challenges

Deforestation, unsustainable fishing in Lake Kivu and habitat destruction. Overfishing, use of unsuitable nets and poor control of fishing activities by maritime services have led to a decrease of the fry stock in waters of Lake Kivu. A depletion of the algae population can also be attributed to their overexploitation by farmers, who use them for weaving mats. The private sale of coastal areas, and activities (deforestation, agriculture) threaten the integrity of the zone.

Beneficiaries

Farmers in the Kabuno Golf, islands fishermen, farmers, breeders, dealers or traders enrolled in the coastal markets of Goma, Bukavu and Gisenyi in Rwanda, and large landowners exploiting coastal areas.
