  • Fishing communities


    The relationship with fishing communities takes place through an active and ongoing dialogue, seeking to build a positive agenda with actions and structuring investments that boost the social and economic development of these communities. To this end, we have as premises the increase in social capital and the alignment of strategic actions with public policies that focus on the territory. Thus, the aim is to seek the participation of local leaders, representatives of local government, social movements, private initiative, NGOs, and other civil society organizations.
