The Peces para la Vida II Project is finding solutions aimed at improving food security and livelihoods in Amazonian Bolivia through technical and organizational support and facilitated access to financial services. The fish farming sector benefits from various experiences and training and, thanks to the contribution of the Project, the fisheries sector in the Northern Amazon, particularly in indigenous communities, improved its paiche management capacity. The creation of multi-stakeholder platforms, with an increased involvement by public stakeholders, demonstrated the effectiveness of dialogue in improving the entire fish value chain.
Peces para la Vida II has so far surveyed approximately 1,500 producers and fishers, and more than 1,000 other stakeholders in the fisheries and fish farming sectors in Bolivia, as well as mapping aquaculture activities in much of the Amazonian plain. Through various interventions, such as training, workshops, technical access and exchanges, to date it has reached 3,200 direct beneficiaries, 38% of which are women.
