WorldFish accomplishes its research through more than 160 donor-funded projects that are part of the CGIAR Research Programs.

This project explores the future of aquaculture development in Indonesia and identifies pathways for growth.

Freshwater capture fisheries in the Lower Mekong Basin provide a majority of the animal-source protein in local diets, and support a large proportion of community livelihoods in the region. However, the contribution of fish to supporting community welfare and livelihoods has never been fully quantified. In the absence of a solid estimate of the total economic, nutritional and livelihood value of these fisheries, their importance has often been overlooked in development planning.

In developing countries, small-scale fisheries (SSF) are a vital source of food, nutrition and income. But pressures from within and external to SSFsuch as overharvesting, infrastructure development and inadequate policy recognitionthreaten their sustainability and equitable distribution of benefits.

CREL aims to protect key ecosystems, wetlands and ecological critical areas in Bangladesh while improving their ability to withstand climate change shocks. The project is focused on improved management of natural resources and livelihoods diversification. In partnership with key government stakeholders, the project is finding solutions to environmental, socioeconomic, legal and policy issues that hamper the creation of a workable climate change mitigation strategy.
