This document provides a common understanding among stakeholders (staff from implementing partners, WorldFish staff, donors, communities) on the approaches undertaken throughout the project. These approaches are based on experience from other WorldFish projects, both in Myanmar and in neighboring countries. This document serves only as a guide, so feedback and recommendations from stakeholders are welcome.
This poster gives information about the SIS species widely available for consumption. Eating SIS as a whole brings numerous benefits and has a great nutritious value. The SIS could be consumed with soup, add with vegetables, and may be eaten with rice. The SIS may look small but it has plenty of benefits.
IRRI together with WorldFish and other global partners are hosting the Virtual Stakeholder Consultations on CGIAR Research Program in 3 Mega-Deltas. As per the title, this virtual stakeholder consultation event will be separated into three unique Delta-specific themes, namely Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta, Mekong Delta, and Ayeyarwady Delta, to articulate and advance a 2030 vision for the Asian Mega-Deltas.
In Nigeria, like many coastal developing countries, fish is an important source of food for the population, which is currently estimated at 186 million people (World Bank 2016). A recent study estimated that Nigeria ranks third globally for the number of people dependent on coastal fisheries for food and nutrition security, and the demand for fish is growing, alongside growth in population and incomes. However, household fish consumption in Nigeria—measured at 13.3 kg/capita/year—is low compared with the world’s average of 20.3 kg/capita/year (FAO 2018).
In 2012, the National Directorate of Fisheries and Aquaculture (NDFA), Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) Timor-Leste, developed the National Aquaculture Development Strategy (NADS) 2012–2030 with technical assistance from WorldFish. The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (NZ MFAT) provided funding to support implementation of NADS through the Partnership for Aquaculture Development in Timor-Leste (PADTL) project (2014–2019).
This working paper is a collaboration between two CGIAR Research Programs (CRPs): Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH) and Roots, Tubers and Bananas (RTB). It documents linkages between fish, roots, tubers and bananas (RTB crops) within food systems; identifies opportunities for strengthened integration in production systems, animal feed and nutritional products; and identifies constraints and research gaps, and provides policy recommendations that support nutrition-sensitive food systems.
Although as of June 1, 2020, Solomon Islands had no coronavirus cases, there was a national economic recession plus restrictions on people’s movement, gatherings, education and business activities. For rural areas, two of the biggest changes have been increased circulation of people—those who moved out of Honiara and back to the provinces—and reduced cash flow. Food trade is impacted by a lack of cash in circulation, meaning reduced marketing of foods in villages and a rise in bartering of fish for other foods.
