Abalobi

BALOBI is a South African-based, global social enterprise. Our mission is to contribute towards thriving, equitable, Climate Change resilient and sustainable small-scale fishing communities globally, through the joint development of Technology For Good.

Our approach focuses on achieving tangible milestones, driven by a suite of mobile apps, that relate to seafood traceability, fully documented fisheries, fair and transparent supply chains, and community cohesion and entrepreneurship as important precursors to launching longer-term ecological improvement actions associated with a transition towards ecological sustainability.

Our technologies and programmes poise small-scale fishers for social, economic and ecological sustainability. We believe in participatory fisheries rebuilding strategies that consider ocean life and livelihoods.

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.
