Training for World Bank staff in fisheries and aquaculture

Early in 2008, WorldFish delivered a training program on fisheries and aquaculture for the Agricultural and Rural Development Department of the World Bank.

Held in Nha Trang, Vietnam, the event was an opportunity for senior World Bank staff from headquarters and regional offices to get a picture of the impact on poverty and hunger that can result from helping countries invest in fisheries and aquaculture.  Joined by development partners from FAO, IFAD, and national agencies, World Bank staff not only debated investment priorities but also put them into practice.  Several of the project concepts evaluated in a "clinic" setting at the training are now being prepared as investments worth over $150 million.  Each year, Bank staff examine a different development sector by participating in such training programs, which are often run by CGIAR Centers.
