This programme focuses on establishing cost-effective methods for sustainable exploitation of the aquatic resources (and the environment) through participatory approaches with stakeholders including local communities. The program undertakes studies on fish markets and supply channels for both processed and unprocessed products, thus evaluating the economic viability of fisheries. Working with and among stakeholder communities, the program taps from indigenous knowledge and integrates the knowledge into management strategies for aquatic resources. The program is the front-runner for both research and management activities aimed at specific fishery resources to gauge the reactions from the stakeholders (riparian communities) and possible socio-economic impacts the activities may have on the management and the policies on food security policy with respect to fisheries. Under this program, indigenous uses of the flora and fauna, and the critical aquatic habitats are documented.
