World Earth Day is an annual event to demonstrate support for environmental protection. SOFER Initiative has been at the forefront of creating awareness and also implementing several projects to reduce, reuse and recycle waste while improving biodiversity and promoting a positive attitude towards the environment.
The Fishing Net Gains Project carried out by SOFER Initiative is recognized globally to be an effective remediation strategy towards reducing Abandoned Lost or otherwise Discarded Fishing Gears. This was fully captured in the GloLitter Partnerships Project Report on good practices to prevent and reduce marine plastic litter from fishing activities.
International Women's day is a day set aside to celebrate the social, economic and cultural achievements of women. It is also a day to acknowledge the numerous contribution women make to the progress of the human race and to raise awareness on any bias against them.
Fisheries plays a very significant role in the world, aside from being a source of food, coastal and inland fishing serve as a major source of livelihood for a huge population of people especially in those in developing countries.
