A new understanding between WorldFish and FAO will combat hunger and improve livelihoods by promoting the impact of fisheries and aquaculture research.
After a month of intensive, hands-on practical learning, 16 students from
across southern Africa completed the first Aquaculture Vocational
Mentorship Course, held at the Lake Harvest company in Zimbabwe.
Women make a significant contribution to aquaculture in Indonesia, yet they face more barriers in and receive fewer benefits from the sector than men. These are the findings of new case studies carried out by WorldFish and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) as part of the CGIAR Research Program on Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH). Closing this gender gap will enable the aquaculture sector to enhance women’s social and economic empowerment, and drive economic development in the country.
