Train 60 community members from two cooperatives in natural resource management of Lake Tana, Ethiopia, and provide information on its potential, and the challenges and conservation opportunities present. Raise awareness in the wider community on who owns Lake Tana's fish, where and when the fish breed and live, and on human impacts on Lake Tana fish stocks. The aim is to rebuild the declining fish stock of Lake Tana, particularly Labeobarbus species, through the enforcement of the Amhara National Regional State Fisheries Proclamation and Regulation.

Strategic Direction: 1 Mainstream biodiversity into wider development policies, plans and projects to deliver the co-benefits of biodiversity conservation, improved local livelihoods and economic development in priority corridors.
