Consultancy Services to Support the Legislative Review and Preparation of Regulations (Draft) for Aquaculture Management and Development in Kenya - deadline 8th June 2018

Rationale for the Consultancy

Fisheries and Aquaculture Policy and Institutional reforms are essential for the establishment of environmental, social and economically sustainable fisheries and aquaculture management and development in Kenya. Aquaculture has experienced a growing trend and is increasingly being recognized for its economic benefits in Kenya.

The government in its effort to boost fish farming nationwide provided support to the aquaculture sub-sector through its Economic Stimulus Program.

This notwithstanding, Kenya’s aquaculture potential is under-utilized and poorly regulated.

Additionally the coordination and linkages between t

Consultancy - ToR for a mapping study in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania

About Hivos

Hivos is an international organisation that seeks new solutions to persistent global issues. With smart projects in the right places, we oppose discrimination, inequality, abuse of power and the unsustainable use of our planet’s resources. Counterbalance alone, however, is not enough. Our primary focus is achieving structural change. This is why we cooperate with innovative businesses, citizens and their organisations. We share a dream with them of sustainable economies and inclusive societies.

Introduction

Freedom of expression is the main measure of openness in a society, but globally, the space for free expression is dwindling. Resistance to this development is led by young frontrunners: artists, musicians, hacktivists, vloggers, writers etc. As these ‘young makers’ challenge the perspectives of older generations, they can break through the hegemonic structures in society.

In May 2017, Hivos launched its
