WorldFish accomplishes its research through more than 160 donor-funded projects that are part of the CGIAR Research Programs.

The Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia in Bangladesh promotes food and nutrition security through greater crop diversification. WorldFish focuses on the development small-scale pond aquaculture and gher agriculture.
Improving Employment and Incomes through Development of Egypt’s Aquaculture Sector project aims to benefit communities through introducing improved tilapia strains, training small-scale fish farms in best management practices and improving conditions for women fish retailers.

WorldFish and the Government of Bangladesh have come together to develop effective ‘bottom of the pyramid’ solutions for small-scale shrimp and prawn farmers to comply with the World Trade Organization’s agreement on the application of sanitary and phytosanitary measures (WTO/SPS) and related Codex Alimentarius Commission and World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). The project aims to help small-scale shrimp and prawn farmers work collaboratively and scale up their collective participation in export market value chains.

In Bangladesh, pressures from population growth, acute food shortages and poverty mean that around 60% of the population suffers from undernutrition. The Expansion of Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia (CSISA)  project brings together local partners, the International Rice Research Institute, the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center and WorldFish to fight food insecurity through the creation of six regional hubs that promote technology innovation and improve agricultural and aquaculture productivity.

Extreme poverty and food insecurity are stark facts in the lives of many people living in rural Timor–Leste, where undernutrition affects 45% of children under the age of five. Fish is rich in micronutrients and is an important part of a balanced diet.
