Assessing the value of fish in the Lower Mekong Basin: A Year in Review

Freshwater capture fisheries in the Lower Mekong Basin provide the regional population with up to 80% of the animal protein in their diet, as well as livelihood opportunities on a vast scale.

Learning to Love IDOs

In WorldFish and in our CRPs talk is increasingly about Intermediate Development Outcomes, or IDOs. But what is an IDO? Why do we need them? And why are they going to influence just about everything we do, from priority setting through to impact assessment?

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.

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.

Ecological and social impacts of Integrated Aquaculture-Agriculture technologies in Bangladesh

This study estimated the adoption rate of integrated aquaculture-agriculture (IAA) technologies in Bangladesh and their impact on poverty and fish and food consumption in adopting households.

Ex-ante assessment of integrated aquaculture-agriculture adoption and impact in Southern Malawi

There are increasing requirements for impact assessment by development partners in order to increase the accountability and effectiveness of research and development projects.

Assessing the Impacts of Natural Resource Management and Policy Research in Development Programs

After decades of stagnation, global investment in agricultural research in pursuit of poverty reduction is on the rise. Developed nations are again looking to the many dimensions of agriculture, including forestry and fisheries, to help meet development goals (particularly the Millennium Development Goals) and accelerate progress. But, with increasing investment, there is also an increasing focus on the need for better outcomes and greater impacts from those investments.

Modeling Impact in Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, significant progress has been made in recent years, in alleviating poverty and under nutrition; however, food insecurity and chronic poverty are evident in many communities. Agricultural technologies can have a significant impact on the quantity and quality of food that farmer’s produce, which directly effects their income and nutrition. This project is designed to estimate the impact of promoting integrated aquaculture-agriculture (IAA) technologies in Bangladesh, on household nutrition and poverty reduction.
