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.
 

WorldFish scientist wins prestigious science award

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.

Institutional Profiles from the Tonle Sap Lake Region: Findings from Informant Interviews

This report is based on key informant interviews conducted in 6 of the 12 villages in the Tonle Sap Lake Region where the WorldFish-led CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) proposes to work with local communities and other stakeholders to address natural resource management and related livelihood challenges.

Gender situational analysis of the Barotse Floodplain

Zambia’s rivers, lakes and wetlands support extensive agriculture, fisheries and livestock production and contribute to the livelihoods of about 3 million people or 25% of the country’s population.

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.
