Nutrient-rich mola fish become popular among farmers

In Bangladesh, changes in the overall agricultural system have seen a continued decline in the areas of inland water and inundation, reducing the habitats for fish. This has contributed to decreased fish harvest, in particular for small fishes like the mola that the rural poor depend on. mola is a nutrient-rich small fish that supplies essential nutrients – in particular vitamin A, calcium, iron and zinc – to these vulnerable population groups.

Optimizing Water Management for Local Livelihoods in the Mekong Basin

With the high potential of hydroelectricity development, the Mekong Basin region faces a rapid, widespread development pressure in the decades to come. Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Vietnam are the main focus areas where more hydropower dam projects are to be built along the Mekong tributaries. Though such projects significantly contribute to regional and national economic growth, local riparian communities are the ones who bear the brunt of the environmental impacts they cause.  Livelihoods of local communities heavily depend on water from rivers and other natural resources in the area a complex way but this complexity is often overlooked by the environmental and social impact assessments conducted for hydropower projects. The past projects in the region, and from around the world, give us a glimpse of the magnitude of short-term and long-term impacts on the livelihoods of riparian communities.
