'TECH + TOUCH'
APPROACH

eCDT, FIN-& Ed-TECH ECOSYSTEM


ABALOBI, meaning 'FISHER' in the isiXhosa language, IS THE NAME GIVEN TO OUR PROGRAMME by SMALL-SCALE FISHERS ENGAGED IN ITS CO-DESIGN



 Our work promotes digital and financial inclusion. Our approach is directed by a suite of fisher-driven 'eCDT' technologies that relate to data empowerment, seafood traceability, fully documented fisheries, fair and transparent supply chains, and community cohesion and entrepreneurship. Critically, we believe that these elements are precursors to longer-term fisheries improvement actions for a transition towards triple bottom line sustainability.
