Contributions of biodiversity to the sustainable intensification of food production: thematic study for The State of the World's Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture

The study provides information, facts and linkages on contribution of biodiversity towards sustainable food production as well as recommendations for having biodiversity-based model for sustainable food production.

Inclusive environmental performance through beyond-farm aquaculture governance

This paper examines the potential for improved environmental performance of smallholder aquaculture production through ‘beyond-farm’ governance. Smallholder aquaculture farmers face a range of systemic environmental risks related to disease and water quality that extend beyond the boundary of their farms. Yet most governance arrangements aimed at mitigating risks, such as certification, finance and insurance, are focused on the farm-level rather than the wider landscape within which farming takes place.

Increasing irrigation benefits and sustainability by integrating fisheries

Irrigation systems and their reservoirs are complex, dynamic socio-ecological systems. With the right management, crop and fish production can both be increased, with the benefits shared equitably among nearby communities. A forthcoming guide will detail how to realize these outcomes by better integrating fisheries into irrigation systems at all scales.

Masa depan akuakultur di Indonesia: Transformasi menuju peningkatan keberlanjutan = The future of aquaculture in Indonesia: A transformation toward increased sustainability (Indonesian version)

Untuk memerangi tingkat kekurangan gizi dan stunting atau kekerdilan saat ini, pemerintah Indonesia telah menetapkan suatu target ambisius untuk pertumbuhan akuakultur di Indonesia hingga tahun 2030. Perikanan secara fundamental telah memberikan kontribusi pada kesejahteraan Indonesia dengan memberikan sumber protein tinggi yang terjangkau. Namun untuk mencapai target yang telah ditentukan, hasil produksi harus ditingkatkan lebih dari tiga kali lipat. Namun bagaimanapun, dalam memenuhi target produksi tersebut akan timbul suatu dampak pada lingkungan.

The future of aquaculture in Indonesia: A transformation toward increased sustainability

To combat current high levels of malnutrition and stunting, the Indonesian government has set ambitious targets for aquaculture growth up to 2030. Fish already fundamentally contributes to the well-being of Indonesians by offering an affordable source of nutritious animal protein. However, to reach these targets, production will have to more than triple. However, meeting the production targets will come at a cost for the environment.

The role of human rights in implementing socially responsible seafood

Sustainability standards for seafood mainly address environmental performance criteria and are less concerned with the welfare of fisheries workers who produce the seafood. Yet human rights violations such as slavery and human trafficking are widespread in fisheries around the world, and underscore the need for certification bodies and other seafood supply chain actors to improve social performance, in addition to addressing environmental challenges.
