Video voice: Fishing for our survival

Traditionally farmers, the people of Androy have relatively few fishermen compared to other communities along the coast. Yet with the recurrent drought, the ocean is becoming an increasingly important resource for many people’s livelihoods.

Sylvain, a fisherman, explains the importance of his tools and the challenges he faces: a lack of sufficient canoes and the threat of devastating cyclones.  Jeanine, a fish seller, explains her journey in getting the fish to market, to secure vital income.

Project

Video voice: Fishing for our survival is produced as part of the Survival strategies oral testimony project.
