WorldFish accomplishes its research through more than 160 donor-funded projects that are part of the CGIAR Research Programs.
Timor-Leste ranks amongst the world’s poorest countries and faces multiple challenges in feeding its people and developing its economy. The fisheries and aquaculture sectors currently fall well short of their potential to contribute to improving livelihoods and food security. There is significant potential to improve food security through the promotion of sustainable marine resource use. This project aims to improve food and nutrition security, productivity and resilience of fisheries systems and community livelihoods in coastal areas of Timor-Leste.
