The EU and IFAD-funded Managing Aquatic Agricultural Systems to Improve Nutrition and Livelihoods project (“Small Fish for Nutrition” for short) uses an integrated aquaculture/agriculture nutrition linkages approach to support poor, rural households in wetlands systems in Cambodia to improve production and productivity of small indigenous species of fish in household aquaculture ponds, and increase consumption of micronutrientrich small fish and vegetables.
In many countries, dietary change is tracked using food supply data from the Food and Agriculture Organization's food balance sheets. It is difficult to draw conclusions on individual or sub-national food consumption from these data and impossible to study inequalities. We analyzed seven Household [Income and] Expenditure Surveys (H[I]ES) in Bangladesh from 1985 to 2010 to track changes in consumption patterns.
Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the five-year Aquaculture for Income and Nutrition (AIN) project improved income and nutrition for thousands of Bangladeshis.
