New advances in rice-aquaculture production systems for deltaic plains: key findings from a project funded by the CGIAR challenge Program on water and food

Forty per cent of the world population is settled in coastal zones, where much of industrial needs and world's food are produced. The influence of the sea on the environment and human livelihood is not restricted to the coastline- and mangrove belt. Indeed, its influence can be found up to 50 km further inland. Brackish water creates an environment in which continuous and dynamic flux impinges upon the stability of agricultural production systems and concomitant livelihood strategies.

Assessment of the impact of aquatic resources research by ICLARM: scope and methodologies.

The importance of quantifying the economic returns to investments in aquatic resources research together with the social, environmental and institutional impacts of such investments is widely recognized among ICLARM's donors, trustees and beneficiaries. As with other Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) centers, ICLARM is being asked to provide specific accounts of the outputs of its research and their impact on farms and on fisheries, including their socioeconomic impact.

The WorldFish Center addressing global development needs : strategic research by WorldFish and the CGIAR

The work of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) provides a scientific basis for sustainable development. As one of 15 CGIAR research institutes, the WorldFish Center provides expertise on fisheries and aquaculture that helps the CGIAR achieve its mission of reducing hunger and poverty while protecting natural ecosystems on which continued progress depends.

The super tilapia

A ten-minute video on the super tilapia of the Genetic Improvement of Farmed Tilapia project produced by ICLARM. The video was prepared through the facilities of the Technology and Livelihood Resource Center of the Philippines. The video was prepared for the International Centers Week in Washington. The CGIAR Secretariat selected ICLARM's research on tilapia as one of the three research breakthroughs to be highlighted at the annual meeting of the CGIAR.

Planning in muddy waters - orientation for strategic planning in CGIAR centers

This report is grounded on the outcomes of a Research Priority Setting Workshop held in Penang, Malaysia, during May 2002. More than a dozen research planners from the CGIAR Centers participated. There was a conscious effort to allow research managers of the CGIAR system discuss issues relating to the science program, and not just the administrative and logistical functions of the Centers. The outcomes of the workshop provided important building blocks to guide the process of strategic priority setting at the Centers in the future.

Medium term plan 2002 - 2004

The International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM) presents its Medium Term Plan (MTP) for 2002-2004 for the consideration by TAC and members of the CGIAR. The Plan has been developed in a period when there is growing public discontent over the limitations of global fish catches from natural environments and the provision of adequate nutrition for the burgeoning human population, especially in developing countries. The current plan is in large part an annual update of earlier plans.

Medium term plan 2001 - 2003

The International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM) presents its Medium Term Plan (MTP) for 2001-2003 for the consideration by TAC and members of the CGIAR. The Plan has been developed in a period when there is growing public discontent over the limitations of global fish catches from natural environments and the provision of adequate nutrition for the burgeoning human population, especially in developing countries. The current plan reflects five influences:
