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.

In the small island developing states of the Pacific, catching, trading and eating fish are central to the way of life and local and national economies. Local and external pressures on marine resources, and high reliance on fisheries as a livelihood, mean that improving and sustaining fisheries benefits is a key pathway to improve human wellbeing and contribute to food and nutrition security. This project aims to improve the wellbeing of Pacific coastal communities through more resilient fisheries as a foundation.

The Strengthening Aquatic Resource Governance (STARGO) project aims to build resilient livelihoods among poor rural producers who depend on the highly contested natural resources in Lake Victoria, Lake Kariba, and Tonle Sap/ Lower Mekong ecoregions. The intent is to improve nutrition, income, welfare and human security, while also reducing the likelihood of broader social conflict.

In the Lau and Langalanga lagoons in Malaita province, Solomon Islands, the ‘saltwater people’ live on small artificial islands on top of coral reefs and mangroves, barter marine resources for root crops and vegetables, and have limited access to land. But the reef fisheries they depend on are threatened by overexploitation, climate change and changing consumption patterns. This project aims to safeguard the food security of these vulnerable communities.
