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.
