A preliminary report of a desk study on regional/international cooperation activities is now available for download.
The objective of the AFSPAN Work Package Review and assessment of national and international cooperation is to review past and on-going cooperation activities focussed on promoting aquaculture in a food security context.
The activities under this work package include: conducting review focusing on regional and international cooperation activities, FAO projects, WorldFish Center projects, relevant CGIAR programmes (including CPR1.3) and projects supported/financed by other donors and development partners and/or implemented by national governments.
The present report deals with the deliverable 3.1 “Preliminarily report on desk study on regional/international cooperation activities’’ which was prepared by the 11 country partners of AFSPAN (Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, China, India, Kenya, Nicaragua, Philippines, Uganda, Vietnam, and Zambia) and synthesised by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
The desk study revealed that there are significant difference between 11 countries in term of the national projects, regional and international cooperation activities. It also identified number of ongoing projects that would be important for AFSPAN project to closely communicate and work in a synergistic and complementary manner. Initial findings are already embedded in the assessment tool which is being developed.
The present preliminarily report and its findings will be shared and discussed amongst the partners, and each work package will be further refined for better approach and cooperation.
A comprehensive analysis and synthesis of national information on aquaculture development projects and activities is currently being done.
