Scientific food systems help biodiversity, livelihoods

Evidence-based collaborative approaches need to be applied to conservation as a million animal and plant species are being pushed to the brink of extinction and fish stocks fall globally. Scientific food systems help biodiversity, livelihoods in many ways. But how? Our experience in Bangladesh was based on a ‘food systems’ approach which identifies solutions that minimize the competing priorities between different parts of the food system: from production to conservation and nutrition. This write up illustrated how scientific food systems help biodiversity, livelihoods.

Nearshore fish aggregating devices (FADs): A technology to boost fisheries production and combat malnutrition in Timor-Leste

Benefits of artisanal nearshore FADs in Timor-Leste • Food production and nutrition security: FADs provide an opportunity to increase the sustainable production of nutrient-rich food in Timor-Leste to combat chronic malnutrition. • Coastal resource management: FADS transfer fishing effort from the reef to the pelagic zone. • Climate change adaptation: FADS act as a food security buffer against socioeconomic and climate shocks, and they increase the resilience of coral reef ecosystems.
