A STREAM report commissioned to support the development of approaches in APEC economies.

This report from the STREAM Initiative draws upon secondary literature, media sources and four diverse case studies from at-risk reef fisheries. These include a review of the current situation regarding at-risk reefs in South Sulawesi from secondary sources and primary interviews; case studies of implementation of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) from at-risk reef fisheries in Komodo in Indonesia and Hon Mun in Vietnam, where alternative livelihoods involving aquaculture are emerging; and an assessment of activities in Tubigon, Bohol Island, in the Visayas Sea, Philippines, where land-based and caged-based aquaculture is being promoted with European Union support.

Poverty Reduction and Aquatic Resources in Emerging Trends and Experiences in Asia-Pacific Aquaculture NACA/FAO, 2004

This chapter commissioned from STREAM is published in ?Emerging trends and experience in Asia-Pacific aquaculture? (NACA/FAO, 2004) and highlights major contemporary trends in Asian aquaculture that relate to poverty reduction including the gradual coming together of development and fisheries specialists around people-focused approaches and understanding of entitlements. The emergence of a shift in thinking, the appearance of new ways of working of engagement and empowerment and new ways of communicating which are already breaking down discourse gaps and the beginnings of impacts from poverty reduction efforts involving aquatic resources.

The role for aquatic resources in poor peoples, livelihoods is complex and context specific. Aquatic resources management in the context of poverty is not constrained to technology or to forms of aquaculture but includes access to natural stocks of fish and other aquatic organism and relates to policy, institutions and processes that support and make attractive livelihood strategies involving aquatic resources. This conference is about how poor people manage aquatic resources and what support is appropriate.
