Where we work
Our activities will be focused primarily on Africa, Asia and the Pacific. Africa and Asia because of the large absolute numbers of poor people and the Pacific because many countries in the region have high levels of poverty and few alternatives to providing livelihoods from aquatic resources.
While developing research products of global utility, we execute much of our work in regional contexts so that we can:
- Engage closely with national partners and their regional collaboration mechanisms;
- Adapt our approaches to the differing conditions and priorities of regions, so that our partnership-based work is most relevant and impactful; and
- Serve the desires of the investment and partner communities for targeted focus on key needs and opportunities.
We’ve defined our regional areas and priorities based on how well fisheries interventions can best contribute to alleviating poverty, hunger and environmental degradation. The three regions are described in the links below:
