Fisheries

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.

Case study: Building resilient community fisheries in Cambodia

Tonle Sap is the largest lake in Southeast Asia and one of the most productive freshwater fisheries in the world. Fish from Tonle Sap provide an essential source of protein and micronutrients, critical to the health of families in Cambodia, a country still plagued by high rates of childhood malnutrition. Managing water resources for food and income also means harnessing the full value of these fisheries for local communities.

Sustainable development of fish supplies to meet food and nutrition security needs

Presentation by Michael Phillips, Malcolm Beveridge and Stephen Hall on: fish and food and nutrition security; fish as food; fish, food and nutrition security scenarios in ASEAN.

This was presented at the meeting on “Integrating Nutrition into the ASEAN Food Security Framework and Strategic Plan of Action on Food Security in ASEAN Region”, held from the 29 January – 1 February 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Ghana Coastal Fisheries Governance Dialogue

This meeting, the second national Fisheries Governance Dialogue, aimed to help stakeholders in the fisheries sector generate a shared understanding of critical lessons and pathways for fisheries co-management success in Ghana. This was a direct response to the call from both fisheries communities and the government of Ghana for a radical change from the way fisheries resources are currently being managed.

Developing capacity in Myanmar’s fisheries

Myanmar lies between Bangladesh and Thailand on the Bay of Bengal and is the largest country in Southeast Asia. The tropical nation has an impressive coastline that forms a quarter of its total perimeter, stretching almost 2000 kilometers along the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea.

The importance of the fish resource in the Mekong River and examples of best practices

The Mekong is an exceptional river in many ways. In terms of fish biodiversity, it is the world’s second richest river after the Amazon (www.fishbase.org). With 6 to 18% of the global freshwater fish catch, it is also home to the largest freshwater fisheries in the world.
 

Study says Coral Triangle must secure food for the future

Biodiversity loss and food insecurity are two of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. The Asia-Pacific's Coral Triangle is defined by its extremely high marine biodiversity, with over one hundred million people living in its coastal zones who use this biodiversity to support their livelihoods.

Researchers say allocation of freshwater is major societal challenge

How and where we allocate freshwater in an environment of increasing demand, and declining quality and availability is a major societal challenge. The needs of local communities that are affected by dam construction and water abstraction are often similar to that of biodiversity. Yet, they are frequently superseded by the necessity to meet national demands for power, food and increasingly, mitigation of the hydrological effects of climate change.
