Aquaculture field schools supporting mangroves for climate change adaptation of Indonesian milkfish-shrimp farmers https://enaca.org/?id=1156&title=aquaculture-field-schools-supporting-mangroves-for-climate-change-adaptation-of-indonesian-milkfish-shrimp-farmers

Over the last five decades, over 30 million people along Java’s north coast have experienced subsidence and subsequent soil erosion. In 2015, Building with Nature Indonesia (BwNI-Demak) started a coastal protection project in 10 communities of nine coastal villages of Demak regency. The protection measures introduced included the use of permeable structures (dams) that successfully capture sediment and support natural recovery of mangroves, and aquaculture field schools, to train small-scale farmers on good aquaculture practices such as low external inputs sustainable aquaculture, associated mangrove aquaculture and multi-trophic srhimp aquaculture.

Impacts of climate change on aquaculture in Vietnam: A review of local knowledge https://enaca.org/?id=1089&title=impacts-of-climate-change-on-aquaculture-in-vietnam

Vietnam has a vast coastline which exposes it to typhoons and flooding. Farmers are at the frontlines of experiencing climate change as their livelihoods are intrinsically linked with the natural environment. Our study collected local knowledge of aquaculture farmers living in South Central Vietnam. The purpose of the interviews was to gather firsthand knowledge on current climate change impacts experienced by farmers, as well as which climate change threats they are most concerned about, and how they are adapting to these threats.
