Hen Mpoano (HM), Friends of the Nation (FoN), Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF), Trygg Mat Tracking (TMT) and the Fisheries Committee of the West Central Gulf of Guinea (FCWC) are working together under the Improving Fisheries Governance in Ghana and the wider sub-region (IFG project) through funding from the Oak Foundation and Oceans 5, to strengthen fisheries governance and transparency.

The three-year project (January 2021- December 2023) aims to strengthen government and industry commitment to improve fisheries governance in the key policy areas of enhanced transparency, law enforcement, collaborative management, and capacity of key stakeholders in Ghana and the West African region.

The project builds on gains made by recent interventions which have increased awareness of issues confronting the sector, driven reforms in areas such as co-management and set out actions towards recovery. It leverages on the good working relationship with regulators and stakeholders and exploit the improved role of fisher associations in fisheries governance.
