This project aims to support women and men in rural Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste to develop and share innovative solutions for sustainable fish-based livelihoods, and increase the capacity of national agencies to support community-based initiatives and ensure equitable rural fisheries development investments.
With only nine growing seasons left before the world will evaluate progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals there is mounting recognition globally that fish and aquatic foods must play a central role in addressing the urgent challenges of poverty
This project aims to work with fishing communities, government agencies and key stakeholders to develop and pilot inclusive nutrition-sensitive fisheries management systems that are adaptable for diverse inshore tropical fisheries.
Along coasts and near inland waterways, fishing provides livelihoods and essential nutrition for millions.
This project aims to trial a modelling approach for quickly and efficiently determining the likely best options for changing agricultural practices in ways that deliver both mitigation and adaptation benefits.
The intented long-term outcome is to be able to accelerate the process of identifying the most promising options, and thus progress to trialling and scaling more quickly than has generally been done to date.
This project aims to identify and characterise the nature and scale of food and nutrition loss in urban agrifood chains in Lusaka City and define it’s drivers and implications.
Zambia is among the fastest urbanising countries, with Lusaka projected to become a major urban centre in Southern Africa.
This scenario implies that there will inevitably be a huge demand for food in cities and towns. This will be driven by a rise in urban population, diversified consumption patterns and demand is likely put pressure on the already overstretched urban food supply chains.
This project aims to identify and characterise the nature and scale of food and nutrition loss in urban agrifood chains in Mzuzu City and define its drivers and implications.
Malawi is among the fastest urbanising countries with Mzuzu projected to become a major urban centre in Southern Africa. The youthful population of Mzuzu, with over half aged below 20 years gives a high population momentum.
This project aims to map (conceptually and geographically) the place-based strengths and assets of Western Province, thus producing a knowledge base to inform agricultural resilience-building strategies.
This will be achieved by collating and interpreting available data and seeking insights from PNG experts and those with local knowledge. This work will produce maps of economic activity showing its diversity across the province.
This project aims to identify locally appropriate livelihood development practices for the agricultural development sector working across the diverse regions of Western Province in PNG (SFRP, church-based groups, rangers, NGOs, local government officers and others).
The study aims to identify suitable tools and methods for participatory livelihood development activities that are tailored to the different geographic, ecological and social contexts across Western Province (including economic and livelihood contexts identified in the complementary work in
This project aims to tackle key nutrition bottlenecks to strengthening Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in response to the DFish’s goal to build a foundation for SME growth in the hybrid grouper sector in Vietnam.
Hybrid grouper farming is the most profitable marine fish aquaculture sector in Vietnam, involving over 400 hybrid grouper hatchery operators and growout farmers. The Directorate of Fisheries aims to increase SMEs in marine aquaculture and considers the lucrative hybrid grouper sector a prime candidate for this strategy.
This project aims to increase native tree stocking in the landscape of northwest Vietnam through smallholder micro-enterprise and research for timber industry application.
This project will increase tree cover in Muong La District, Son La Province by developing a farmers’ cooperative nursery using participatory action research to produce and sell fruit, fuelwood and timber trees, supporting members’ tree planting on their own lands and enabling income generation.
