Can climate-smart aquaculture enable women's empowerment in rural Bangladesh?

Climate-smart aquaculture provides a means to ensure sustainable fish supply to those who experience negative impacts of climate change. However, there has been little research on possible benefits of climatesmart aquaculture for enabling the empowerment of women who are fish farmers. This brief outlines the key findings of a study that investigated a WorldFish homestead pond intervention, which is considered a climate-smart practice. In particular, the study assessed whether this intervention acted as an enabler toward empowerment for women in two divisions in rural Bangladesh.

Gender-inclusive facilitation for community-based marine resource management. An addendum to ‘Community-based marine resource management in Solomon Islands: A facilitators guide’ and other guides for community-based resource management

Both women and men should be included in community-based marine resource management. To create an inclusive management process it is necessary to use deliberate and thoughtful and reflexive strategies that do not rely on or worsen existing power imbalances. Researchers using a reflexive strategy are self-aware and constantly reflecting on and critiquing their potential biases and how those might influence their research. In this paper we offer concrete examples of genderinclusive facilitation strategies that could be used as part of a larger reflexive community engagement process.

Gender norms and relations: implications for agency in coastal livelihoods

Improving livelihoods and livelihood opportunities is a popular thrust of development investments. Gender and other forms of social differentiation influence individual agency to access, participate in, and benefit from existing, new, or improved livelihood opportunities. Recent research illustrates that many initiatives intended to improve livelihoods still proceed as “gender blind,” failing to account for the norms and relations that will influence how women and men experience opportunities and outcomes.

Fish trait preferences: a review of existing knowledge and implications for breeding programmes

Continued growth of the aquaculture sector will rely on the availability of fish with traits that respond to the needs and preferences of these users along the value chain. Such trait responsiveness requires that fish breeding programmes have reliable knowledge of these users’ trait preferences. The present study found from a non-systematic literature review, that no fish breeding programme had reported user preference in their product-profile design.
