Job Description

Sub: Job Advertisement

Job Title: Project Manager.

Project Name: Innovative Fishery Development for Job creation:

Project Donor: Oxfam

Duty Station: Berbera/ Hargeisa

Reporting to: Sahil Regional Representative

Project Background

Fisheries play a significant social and nutritional role in Africa. The sector represents a key social safety net, contributes to food and nutrition security, and provides jobs, in particular for rural coastal populations, which are among the poorest and most vulnerable. On average, fish and fish products account for 18% of animal protein intake by African consumers, and the sector provides employment to over 12 million people (58% in the fishing and 42% in the processing sector). While fishing jobs are almost entirely taken by men, 59% of the processing work is done by women.

The fisheries sector is recognized as a vital economic driver for job creation and economic growth in Somaliland if it is well invested in and structured throughout the value chain right from harvesting to consumer. Although Somaliland National Development Plan II (2017 -2021), Somaliland National Vision 2030 and the Ministry of Livestock, Fishery and Marine resources have identified the fisheries as priority area for intervention, the government commitments to regulate and support the fishing sector is constrained by limited resources.
