A partnership at many levels: CARE and WorldFish

A story of partnership from WorldFish and CARE, for the Global Conference on Agricultural Research for Development (GCARD) theme P - Partnerships.
Since the 1940s, the humanitarian organization, CARE, has been a key player on the world development stage. CARE’s work ranges from the delivery of humanitarian assistance amid times of crisis, to more on-going support to build community resilience and development capacity. CARE began working with WorldFish in a number of projects to improve livelihoods in developing countries. CARE and WorldFish both share a determination to alleviate poverty in vulnerable communities, and this mutual goal has fostered a productive partnership in countries including Bangladesh and Egypt and now with the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS).

In response to this need, the Aquatic Agriculture Systems Capacity Building Project aims to enhance the capacities of the Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) and Philippine research partners in understanding aquatic agricultural systems  and their development challenges.
