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

The Lake Chilwa Basin project is developing a range of climate change adaptation solutions that will enhance the capacity of communities to adopt sustainable livelihood and natural resource management practices.

Freshwater capture fisheries in the Lower Mekong Basin provide a majority of the animal-source protein in local diets, and support a large proportion of community livelihoods in the region. However, the contribution of fish to supporting community welfare and livelihoods has never been fully quantified. In the absence of a solid estimate of the total economic, nutritional and livelihood value of these fisheries, their importance has often been overlooked in development planning.

CREL aims to protect key ecosystems, wetlands and ecological critical areas in Bangladesh while improving their ability to withstand climate change shocks. The project is focused on improved management of natural resources and livelihoods diversification. In partnership with key government stakeholders, the project is finding solutions to environmental, socioeconomic, legal and policy issues that hamper the creation of a workable climate change mitigation strategy.

High population density, a degraded environment and the effects of climate change in Malawi's Lake Chilwa Basin are causing food insecurity and exerting increased pressure on forests and fisheries, which provide important sources of income and critical safety nets for the poor in times of crises. The Lake Chilwa Basin project is developing a range of climate change adaptation solutions that will enhance the capacity of communities to adopt sustainable livelihood and natural resource management practices.
