This program aims to help poor and vulnerable people to more fully benefit from aquatic agricultural systems, which include a mix of cultivation, livestock, aquaculture, fishing, and gathering of natural resources. Although these diverse farming systems can be highly productive, smallholders face many constraints that prevent them from leveraging this potential and improving their livelihoods. The research will focus on increasing productivity, improving market access, strengthening resilience and adaptive capacity, reducing gender disparities, and improving policies and institutions for the benefit of the poor.
