A study of the fisheries post-harvest and market supply chains in Nias island, North Sumatera province, Indonesia
The post-harvest overview (PHO) of Nias was undertaken as a starting point for the project in order to develop a good understanding of the Nias post-harvest sector both to help the project development and, in the long term, to inform and support the long-term planning and development processes on the island.
The Nias Post-Harvest Overview (PHO) is expected to provide: an understanding of how the sector contributes to national development objectives; the characteristics of the supply, processing and consumption of fish; the changes which are taking place in the subsector and their impacts on the local livelihoods; and a description of the institutions and interventions which support the subsector. The potential for improvement in each of these areas are highlighted in order to facilitate implementing suitable interventions.
The Fisheries Post-Harvest and Marketing Systems for Fisheries Products Project in Nias, Indonesia, implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO-UN), focuses on improving the livelihoods of the fishers and traders involved in post-harvest and marketing activities in Nias Island.
