WorldFish Center is being sub-contracted by WWF to provide inputs to Phase II of the USAID-funded CARPE “Lac Tele Lac Tumba” landscape management project. The 2nd phase will last 5 years and commenced in October 2006. Although the CARPE landscapes are fundamentally focused on conservation of the Congo River Basin rainforest and threatened flora and fauna therein, WorldFish inputs will focus on assessments and related follow-up work on (a) the existing / potential role of fisheries/aquaculture in livelihoods, and (b) fisheries management. This is a transboundary landscape and WorldFish Center has only been contracted to work in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) part of the landscape (which also extends into Republic of Congo). The main focus of the CARPE work at this point is on reducing post-harvest losses and fisheries livelihoods.
