Technical Partnership to Improve Aquaculture Activity of SHOUHARDO II Program

The sandy beach at Cox’s Bazar stretches unbroken for further than the eye can see, and is the pride of the Bangladeshi people. Located in the country’s southeastern corner, the beach is a popular tourist destination for Bangladeshis and international visitors alike. Despite this, many of the local communities that call Cox’s Bazar home struggle with food insecurity and poverty.

Timor-Leste to tackle poverty and malnutrition with aquaculture

The government of Timor-Leste has developed a National Aquaculture Development Strategy, designed to help reduce high levels of poverty and chronic malnutrition throughout the country.

Considerations about dissemination of improved fish strains for aquaculture

Strain comparisons in aquaculture species: a manual

When different strains or breeds of a particular species are available, the best choice is seldom immediately obvious for producers. Scientists are also interested in the relative performance of different strains because it provides a basis for recommendations to producers and it often stimulates the conduct of work aimed at unraveling the underlying biological mechanisms involved in the expression of such differences.

Ex-ante impact evaluation: case studies from Malawi, Bangladesh and Ghana

This document presents ex-ante impact evaluations of research for development projects related to aquaculture in Bangladesh, Malawi and Ghana. The Ghana chapter also includes an ex-ante evaluation of a fisheries project. The case studies utilized preliminary versions of guidelines developed specifically for ex-ante evaluations of aquaculture and fisheries projects. The guidelines, found in A Practical Guide for Ex-Ante Impact Evaluations in Fisheries and Aquaculture, are designed to provide an approach for a qualitative examination of the potential for a project to deliver impacts.

Managing floodplain natural resources in Bangladesh and India

Bangladesh and the neighboring Indian state of West Bengal lie across the fertile delta floodplains where the Ganges River splits and then spills into the Bay of Bengal. With an estimated combined population of 250 million, the Ganges delta is one of the most populous regions of the world, and poverty in rural communities can be devastating. Managing the shared natural resources of the floodplains is vital to maintaining the area’s biodiversity, while reducing the poverty and malnutrition of those who rely on it. With potentially damaging aquaculture practices and overexploitation of fisheries resources spreading rapidly in some areas, understanding the best management practices for the floodplains, and developing policies to protect both environment and livelihoods is urgently needed.
 

A practical guide for ex-ante impact evaluation in fisheries and aquaculture

This guide provides a framework for ex-ante evaluation of fisheries and aquaculture projects in developing countries. Ex-ante impact evaluations check the potential of a project or program to deliver benefits from proposed interventions.

Governance of Global Value Chains in Response to Food Safety and Certification Standards: The Case of Shrimp from Vietnam

We use global value chain (GVC) theory to understand governance of Vietnam’s shrimp farming industry. We describe this GVC as buyer-driven with important food safety standards imposed by governments of importing countries and new certification systems promoted by nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

Considerations about dissemination of improved fish strains

Aquaculture production systems in developing countries are largely based on the use of unimproved species and strains. As knowledge and experience are accumulated in relation to the management, feeding and animal health issues of such production systems, the availability of genetically more productive stock becomes imperative in order to more effectively use resources.
