“Promoting climate-smart aquaculture systems” on 27 January

Agrilife24.com:“Promoting climate-smart aquaculture systems” a virtual discussion exploring the latest research and technology in aquaculture production systems for improved livelihoods. This webinar to be held on Thursday, 27 January 2022 at 19:00-20:30 (UTC+8) / 13:00-14:30 (UTC+2).

IFAD and WorldFish are organizing this webinar for knowledge sharing on climate-smart aquaculture systems, with a focus on IPRS and IAA, that can provide solutions to food security and reduce poverty at a time of climate change.

The Advancing Climate-Smart Aquaculture Technologies (ACliSAT) project contributes to poverty reduction and nutrition by promoting climate-resilient and more productive culture practices of Nile Tilapia for different water and environmental conditions in emerging and existing aquaculture sectors in three countries – Egypt, Eritrea and Ethiopia. Aquaculture systems that optimize water use efficiency and adapt to different environmental conditions are important for successful tilapia farming in arid lands.

Climate-smart aquaculture systems are of particular importance in mitigating the pressing effects of climate change as well as adapting to the changing climate conditions that directly affect the food security, nutrition, and livelihoods of millions of vulnerable people in developing countries.

WorldFish has undertaken research and technology improvement for several systems including the Integrated Aquaculture-Agriculture system (IAA), and Improved Pond Raceway Aquaculture System (IPRS). These systems enable intensification of production, efficient use of natural resources and nutrients and re-using wastes such as pond water and mud as crop fertilizer. Such technologies will help to expand aquaculture systems to new horizons.
