Training and education

The Education and Training Programme assists capacity building among NACA members through the exchange and sharing of knowledge and skills between members. Activities may take the form of training courses, study visits and personnel exchange. The programme also supports the training components of the other thematic programmes and serves as an outreach arm of NACA. Regular training activities include three to four courses each year on various topics of regional priority in aquaculture development.

Environment and sustainability

Maintaining environmental integrity while increasing food production will require farming systems to reduce their unit production environmental footprint. The Sustainable Farming Systems Programme aims to help aquaculture become a more efficient user of natural resources. The programme develops better management practices for major aquaculture farming systems, and promotes aquaculture as a secondary or additional use of water resources. The programme focusses on practical interventions that can be directly achieved by small-scale farmers in a developing country context.
