SaafConsult contracted by Drosos for evaluation of Tyre Fishing Syndicate projects implemented by IUCN
1st Sep, 2016

The costal fisherman and their families of Tyre are among the poorest groups in Southern Lebanon. There is a need to assist the community and the members of the Tyre Fishing Syndicate (almost 400 families, 2000 persons) to jointly improve their livelihoods through sustainable fisheries management, better processing and supplementary income generation. Therefore, since 2013 The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Association for the Development of Rural Capacities (a Lebanese NGO) implements project "Sustainable fisheries management for improved livelihoods of the coastal fishing community in Tyre". SaafConsult BV has been contracted by Drosos Foundation, project's donor, to design, plan and conduct the final evaluation of this four-year project.
