Using Aquaculture Development to Encourage Women’s Employment in West Africa

Jul 6, 2019

In rural Nigeria, it can be difficult for women to find gainful employment, according to The West and Central African Council for Agricultural Research and Development (CORAF) . CORAF is a sustainable agricultural organization based in Africa. A recent article by CORAF highlighted one of its initiatives, the West African Agricultural Productivity Program (WAAPP). WAAPP was created by the Aquaculture National Center of Specialization, as a cooperative effort, according to CORAF. The WAAPP initiative aims to empower women through aquaculture development by providing job assistance in the fishery industry. Due to this initiative, Hassana Douada of Busawa Niger State in Nigeria was recently able to purchase a smoking kiln. Through an increased female workforce, rural families earn two incomes rather than one, which is a major advantage when raising a large family, according to CORAF.
