Training manual on household based pond aquaculture,homestead gardening and nutrition awareness

Currently many farming households face health and economic risks because of problems in malnutrition as a result of lack of knowledge and training, improved technologies and processes in farming. From the beginning of the CSISA-BD project, the World Fish Center has initiated introduction improved practices and technologies in rural farming to address malnutrition in farming households. In order to address the problem discussed, as a part of this project it has been felt there is a lack of skilled trainers and training materials. Based on field experience and existing training manuals, the WFC has developed training material and manuals on ‘Household Based Pond Aquaculture, Homestead Gardening and Nutrition Awareness with respect to the environment and socio-economic risks faced by fish farmers. These manuals have been developed for government and non-government training staff and fish farmers. During the project period the training staff and fsh farmers, it is expected that the manuals will be beneficial. Based on the experience in the field, the manuals will be further developed and enriched in future. It can be expected that various government and nongovernment training staff and persons will utilize this manual to assist in the development of human resources as well as fish production and thus contribute to the country’s overall economic development.
