The Timor-Leste National Aquaculture Development Strategy (NADS) 2012–30, which was developed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) with technical assistance from WorldFish, emphasizes implementation through joint ventures between government, INGOs, NGOs and the private sector to realize its success. The 2nd Timor-Leste National Aquaculture Forum was held on 8 August 2019 in Dili.
The project Aquaculture: Increasing Income, Diversifying Diets, and Empowering Women in Bangladesh and Nigeria” funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. The 50-month long project aims to improve the sustainable livelihoods through economic improvement, nutrition enhancement and empowerment of women for a large number of smallholder farmers and other stakeholders linked to the aquaculture value chains in the North West of Bangladesh.
The project is particularly important from a nutrition-sensitive perspective, as increasing women's empowerment through the production of fish, a highly nutritious animal-source food, is a key pathway through which the nutrition of women, as well as their family members, can be improved.
