ZAMBIA AQUACULTURE ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

CALL FOR APPLICATION

The Government of the Republic of Zambia is implementing the Zambia Aquaculture Enterprise Development Project (ZAEDP) with support from the African Development Bank (AfDB) under the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock (MFL). The project aims at stimulating a viable aquaculture subsector in Zambia in order to promote economic diversification, food security and sustainable employment generation, all of which are central priorities of the Government of Zambia. The development goal is to develop a domestic aquaculture subsector which serves as viable and inclusive business opportunity through enhanced production and productivity to improve the livelihood of beneficiaries along the aquaculture value chain.

The project is designed with an Aquaculture Seed Fund valued at USD 23.76 million whose objective is to increase access to affordable financing along the Aquaculture Value Chain. The Aquaculture Seed Fund is implemented jointly with the Citizen Economic Empowerment Commission (CEEC) as Fund Managers.

The Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock through ZAEDP is calling for aquaculture value chain players to apply for loans and investment in the following targeted districts;
