Overview

This project contributes to improving food security and well being of sub-Saharan rural households trapped in cycles of poverty and vulnerability that are exacerbated by climate change. Practices are being developed that integrate aquaculture into diversified food production systems and enhance management of water use for aquaculture as well as improve small-scale irrigation. A scientific assessment will be conducted of the potential for sustaining high water productivity, improving capacity for design, developing and implementing approaches for enhancing water use, and providing guidance for water use by integrating aquaculture and small scale irrigation in the Chinyanja Triangle in the lower Zambezi River Basin. The basin encompasses the Southern and Central Provinces of Malawi, the Eastern Province of Zambia and the Tete Province of Mozambique.
