From researcher to farmer: partnerships in integrated aquaculture-agriculture systems in Malawi and Cameroon

The potential for integrating aquaculture with agriculture has been widely recognized as a means of improving the use of inputs, diversifying output and economic opportunity, and enabling smallholder producers to maintain and strengthen livelihoods. This paper describes the outcomes of this approach and explains the extent to which it has been taken up and has led to sustained and self-generated capacity. Based in particular on experience in Malawi, Ghana and Cameroon, it also considers implications more widely in the region.

Public private partnership in small-scale aquaculture and fisheries

This policy brief explores the question “which aspects of past public private partnerships (PPPs) in aquaculture and fisheries were useful, effective and replicable?”. We ask what general principles should lie behind new PPPs that are set up to promote sustainable human development through aquaculture and fisheries, and we address the key governance role of the public sector in developing countries in facilitating their effective application.

Public-private partnerships for fisheries and aquaculture: getting started

Public-private partnership (PPP) is becoming increasingly important for furthering development goals. But deciding when a PPP is suitable and what PPP arrangement is best is difficult. Many options exist for such partnership arrangements, and the differences among them can be subtle but significant. It is therefore important that researchers for development, managers, advisors and policymakers understand the language and concepts of PPPs.

Lessons from community based management of floodplain fisheries in Bangladesh

Inland (floodplain) fisheries remain the most important contributor to fish production in Bangladesh. They have in the past been administered to generate government revenue without due concern for sustainability or equity. Community Based Fisheries Management (CBFM) is a possible solution and was tested in 19 waterbodies (rivers and beels) during 1996–2000. The outcomes so far are assessed with respect to social, institutional, and physical context, and the interactions that arose in establishing CBFM.
