This survey was carried out by the UCC team to map fish landing beaches, processing sites and markets as well as collect baseline data on handwashing facilities, adherence to social distancing and wearing of facemasks in all coastal fishing communities from July to August, 2020. The activity feeds into building a baseline and developing a database for M&E of the SFMP COVID-19 response, especially for COVID-1 and COVID-2. The main goal is to develop the COVID-19 database into a web-based response tracker disaggregated by locale for effective monitoring and assessment of project activities. With assistance of SFMP implementation partners, landing beaches, processing sites and key fish markets were identified and geo-referenced using the ODK application. The number of handwashing facilities available and additional numbers required, sufficiency of supplies (i.e. soap and water), hand washing, social distancing and wearing of face masks were assessed. About 98% of the sites had inadequate hand washing facilities, with an estimate of over 1,000 additional handwashing buckets required. There was gross disregard for key COVID-19 protocols on hand washing, physical or social distancing and wearing of face masks at most sites, which presents the need for behavior change communication actions at all sites. Details of survey results are presented in this report, and the online database is being developed using the survey data.
