A new understanding between WorldFish and FAO will combat hunger and improve livelihoods by promoting the impact of fisheries and aquaculture research.
Marine litter is a problem caused globally, but it is being most felt by coastal communities in developing countries, like Adara in Timor-Leste. Finding sustainable solutions to marine litter is the focus of World Oceans Day today, of which research to build the recognition and resilience of small-scale fisheries and fishers plays a critical part.
Market-led aquaculture is changing the lives of small-scale farmers in Nigeria and Kenya, highlighting the huge potential for aquaculture to drive rural development across Africa. That’s the message of a recently released report by the UK’s All-Party Parliamentary Group on Agriculture and Food for Development. The report states that research by the WorldFish-led CGIAR Research Program on Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH) and others will be a key factor in realizing this potential.
