Gender https://enaca.org/rss/?tag=18 The Gender Programme was established to ensure that NACA implements the action plans on gender mainstreaming within its activities. With a continued interest in embracing gender integration among relevant agencies, NACA aims to build up capacity of members in gender mainstreaming in all its undertakings, and motivate support and action globally. Insufficient capacity for gender research and application among stakeholders is a hindrance to effectively implement programs integrating the gender dimensions in development. Adding a gender dimension in aquaculture value chains will give assurance to consumers that seafood has been produced sustainably. Key activities Key activities of the programme are: Women, Youth and Aquaculture Development Programme. Organising and supporting symposia on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries. Capacity building on gender integration and mainstreaming. Curriculum development on gender in aquaculture and fisheries education. In-country gender assessment reports for policy, action and research. Publication of case studies and success stories on gender in aquaculture value chains. Coordinating the Regional Gender Practitioners’ Network and mentoring programmes. Campaigns and policy advocacy for gender integration in aquaculture. info@enaca.org info@enaca.org Copyright all rights reserved NACA Newsletter, Vol. XXXVII, October-December 2022 https://enaca.org/?id=1235&title=naca-newsletter-october-december-2022

A success story of ornamental fish farming as a tool for alternative livelihood of tribal women in Keonjhar District, Odisha, india https://enaca.org/?id=1230&title=a-success-story-of-ornamental-fish-farming-as-a-tool-for-alternative-livelihood-of-tribal-women-in-keonjhar-district%2C-odisha%2C-india

In Odisha, India, ornamental fish farming, culture and seed production are being utilised by self help groups to provide livelihoods for poor people in rural communities. The objective of self help groups is to sustainably increase the income of poor families to bring them above the poverty line. This is being achieved through a process of social mobilisation, training and capacity building, and provision of some necessary facilities. This article documents the evolution of ornamental fish farming by the Pragati Self Help Group in Bhatunia Village.

Collection of freshwater molluscs and sale of meat by women in Purba Medinipur, West Bengal, India https://enaca.org/?id=1228&title=collection-of-freshwater-molluscs-and-sale-of-meat-by-women-in-purba-medinipur%2C-west-bengal%2C-india

The common freshwater snail Bellamya bengalensis, golden apple snail Pila globosa and freshwater pearl mussel Lamellidens marginalis are naturally found in West Bengal. These molluscs are also an important source of protein for poor rural communities, and are also gaining popularity in middle and high income suburban areas for their nutritional and traditional medicinal values. They also represent a significant source of employment and income generation for women from Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Castes. This article documents the collection, preparation, trade and use of freshwater molluscs in Paschim Medinipur and Purba Medinipur districts of West Bengal.

Webinar: Culture-based fisheries for rural development https://enaca.org/?id=1154&title=webinar%3A-culture-based-fisheries-for-rural-development

Join us on 31 May for a free webinar on Culture-based fisheries for rural development, with leading experts from the Asian region. Culture-based fisheries (CBF) are practices to enhance fish stocks in waters that don't have enough natural recruitment to sustain a fishery. CBF practices are usually applied in small water bodies such as village dams and irrigation reservoirs. Fish growth is driven by the natural productivity of the waters, foraging on natural food supplies. The simplicity and low capital requirements of CBF make it easy for farming communities to learn and adopt.
