The main and primary stakeholders and ones that will be further identified in the first year and continuously engaged throughout the implementation of the project encompass: primary producers, post-harvest aggregators/middlemen, processing plants, distributors, service providers, NGOs and CSOs, local, national and regional institutions including government authorities, academia, and regional fisheries bodies.

Additionally, financial institutions and investment organizations at the national, regional and international levels will be engaged in different activities throughout the life of the Project. Furthermore, capacity building activities, lessons learned and dissemination activities will be engaging and benefiting a large array of regional and international stakeholders.

The Project will identify national and regional organizations, both institutional and Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), with whom partnership frameworks will be developed for capacity building and thus fostering country ownership and empowerment in terms of value chain development. The Project is implemented in partnership with the Korea Fisheries Resources Agency.
