1 Regional seminar on aquaculture for Embassies, Norad and fisheries advisers Michael Phillips, WorldFish

2 WorldFish is a member of the CGIAR

3 WorldFish Mission and Vision Mission: To reduce poverty and hunger by improving fisheries and aquaculture Vision: to be the research partner of choice for delivering fisheries and aquaculture solutions in developing countries

4 4 Research foci and impact Sustainably increase food and nutrition security through fisheries and aquaculture. Achieve annual production growth rates of over 10% in priority countries, leading to gender equitable increases in per capita consumption by over 20% for 20m poor consumers by 2018 and contributing to reduced micronutrient deficiencies among these populations. Reduce poverty and vulnerability through fisheries and aquaculture. Improve the lives of 15 million people in priority countries within 6 years, increasing to 50 million by 2022 through scale up and scale out. Focal Area Key research question Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation How will climate change affect fisheries and aquaculture in developing countries and how can adaptive capacity be built? Improved value chains How can we improve input and output value chains to increase the development impact of aquaculture and fisheries? Nutrition and health How can investments in fisheries and aquaculture best improved human nutrition and health? Gender and equity How can strengthening the rights of marginalized fish dependent people reduce inequality and poverty? Sustainable aquaculture technologies How do we increase productivity, ecological resilience and development impact of aquaculture? Policies and practice for resilience What policy and management investments will increase the resilience of small-scale fisheries and increase their contribution to reducing poverty and hunger?

5 WorldFish Geographic focus

6 Reform OldNew 15 Independent Centers1 Consortium Diffuse CGIAR prioritiesFocus on 15 research programs (CRPs) Recognition of impactFocus on impact Weak partnershipsEffective partnerships

7 CGIAR Research Program 3.7 More Meat Milk and Fish by and for the Poor

8 CRPs Climate change agriculture and food security and Agriculture for nutrition and health

9 Aquatic Agricultural Systems CRP 1.3 - Harnessing the potential of Aquatic Agricultural Systems for the poor and vulnerable IRRI

10 Aquatic agricultural systems AAS - where annual aquatic production dynamics contributes to household income

11 Household approach - Improving productivity in AAS Limited diversity of crops and varieties available to poorest farmers Over 75 varieties of rice, wheat and maize + tilapia and carps; but varieties not sufficiently targeted to locations Increased dissemination and uptake of technologies High adoption rates of new practices Reduced gender gap in technology adoption rates Improved incomes Equitable sharing by men and women Increased share for poorest and vulnerable

12 “Evidence of commitment to gender analysis in CRP 1.3 is reflected in budget figures, M&E plans and gender goals that are clearly stated and are transformative in nature” CGIAR Gender Scoping Study Gender “CRP 1.3 is a clear example of best practice” CGIAR Gender Scoping Study Reduced gender gaps in: access to technologies workload for activities access to/share of resources food availability and nutrition health and life expectancy survival rates after disasters

13 More Meat Milk and Fish by and for the Poor

14 Consumers R4D integrated to transform selected value chains for selected commodities in selected countries. Value chain development team + research partners An integrated value-chain approach for focused impact... Approach: Solution-driven R4D to achieve impact

15 Program components In country value-chain research and knowledge application Platform Research Breeds Feeds Health Targeting Monitoring & Evaluation Technology IPG’s Process IPG’s (Action Learning) Process IPG’s (Action Learning) Adaptive Research

16 .. target both households and SMEs Households –Income –Nutrition SMEs –Commercial –Value chains –Business development –supplyingurban poor

17 Partnership Excellence Growth (1) Targeting - an example of research on aquaculture and food security from Cambodia

18 Analyzing future fish scenarios

19 Cambodia’s future fish sectoral analysis scenario setting for 2030 map high and low impact pathways investments needed

20 catfishtilapia 2008 2030  Impacts of catfish and tilapia on climate change can be reduced by 3-4 times through applying technologies and management systems of existing “best performers”… Difference in climate change impacts (t CO 2 eq per tonne)

21 Breakdown of aquaculture production by source SourceQuantity (t) % of total Semi-subsistence homestead ponds399,38929 Commercial semi-intensive ponds391,66829 Commercial intensive ponds395,00029 Shrimp & prawn97,7467 Other71,1145 Total 1,354,944 100

22 Aquaculture is substituting for declining capture fisheries 1996 2006 Changes in farmed and wild fish consumption among 957 households in 4 districts, 1996-2006 (IFPRI survey data)

23 (2) Breeding and genetics Quantitative Genetics – “new” technology in fish Little capacity – government and private sector Tilapia, Carps, Catfish, Freshwater Prawn

24 (3) Business - returns to “project” can be significant, but it takes time SMEs and patient capital... India Aceh

25 Incubating SMEs… Collective arrangements - cooperatives, farmer producer companies.. Collective arrangements allow –Reduce transaction costs and economies of scale –Makes investment easier Capacity building takes time Business not project “Incubation” Opportunities to build business ecosystem, network and build scale

26 The future of certification? Wider coverage of certification, or alternative management tools needed for the other 90%..

27 Thankyou
