REFRESH

Country: Malawi
Funder: USAID

The Restoring Fisheries for Sustainable Livelihoods in Lake Malawi program, or REFRESH, is conserving the freshwater biodiversity of Lake Malawi by restoring natural fisheries productivity in the lakeshore districts of Karonga, Rumphi, Likoma, Nkhata Bay, Nkhotakota, Salima, Dedza and Mangochi. REFRESH is working to ensure that targeted Lake Malawi aquatic habitats are healthy and well-managed, that endemic fish populations are self-sustaining, and that Lake Malawi fisheries are managed sustainably by 2024. REFRESH builds on communities' successes under USAID and Pact's FISH project.
