Atuabo Freeport Livelihood Restoration Plan

Project Location: Ghana
Project Date: 2016
Project Funding: ERM
Project Summary: Atuabo Freeport Livelihood Restoration Plan


MEP was contracted to complete a Participatory Fish Catch Survey designed to gather data in advance of offshore construction and to provide a benchmark of fish landing volumes by species and sales values at the beach landing point. The work involved the creation of a purpose built reporting database accessible to enumerators by phone. The survey aimed to identify fish species, volumes and values to provide the benchmark for quantifying project impact. MEP then continued to monitor and analyse fish catch landings over a seasonal period
