WorldFish scientist wins prestigious science award

WorldFish scientist Dr. Pip Cohen has won a prestigious 2014 Queensland Young Tall Poppy Science Award. The award recognizes Dr. Cohen’s work on small-scale fisheries governance among the least developed nations in the Pacific

Leading African Agri-Research Organization Solidifies Partnership with WorldFish

A new partnership between the leading African organization for agricultural research for development (AR4D), the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA), and WorldFish will focus on improving the lives of the 80 million people in sub-Saharan Africa dependent on aquatic agricultural systems.

New report links aquaculture and poverty reduction

WorldFish working together with the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies has exposed evidence of aquaculture's link to poverty reduction in a new report. Data gathered over a ten-year period provides important evidence for the need to invest in the sector as a way to alleviate global poverty and hunger.
 

Economic Analysis of Climate Change Adaptation

The Philippines is particularly vulnerable to climate change, as its extensive coastline is a key environmental and economic resource. Conserving ecosystems and protecting livelihoods depends to a large extent on stakeholders’ ability to predict the impact of climate change and on communities’ capacity to adapt. This study is an effort to better understand the risks associated with climate change, and assess adaptation and policy options to address these risks more effectively.

Fish-aggregating devices linked to food security and livelihoods in new study

A new study by WorldFish, the Solomon Islands Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources and the University of Queensland provides information on the role of near-shore fish aggregating devices (FADs) for food security and livelihoods in Solomon Islands, a nation that depends on coastal fisheries for food and nutrition security. In Solomon Islands, it is projected that coastal fisheries will not be able to supply the fish needed to meet increasing demand without improved coastal fisheries management and alternative sources of fish.
 

Collaborative effort to operationalize the gender transformative approach in the Barotse Floodplain

The gender transformative approach (GTA) being pursued by the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) seeks to address the causes and consequences of gender inequalities. Aquatic agricultural systems are those in which production in natural freshwater and/ or coastal ecosystems contribute substantially to people’s food, nutrition and economic security. This CRP is implemented by WorldFish, International Water Management Institute (IWMI), Bioversity International and a wide range of research and development partners. It operates in learning hubs in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Philippines, Solomon Islands and Zambia. In this brief, the authors highlight the conceptual and methodological approaches and the early implementation experiences of the GTA in the Barotse Floodplain hub in Zambia.

The Biorepository at ILRI: Challenges and Opportunities

Presented by Mr Absolomon Kihara, ILRI Biorepository Manager. WorldFish HQ, Penang, Malaysia, 23 Oct 2014. There is a scientific and ethical imperative to make the maximum use of biological samples which have been obtained, often at a significant expense.

Gender-equity or gender-equality scales and indices for potential use in aquatic agricultural systems

This report summarizes existing gender equality/equity scales or indices found in a review of the literature, conducted to inform the design and evaluation of a communication intervention to generate community-based, gender-transformative action in agricultural or aquatic agricultural systems (AAS). It is anticipated that findings from this report will contribute to a comprehensive research design to test the effects of gender transformative interventions beyond this single intervention.
