A virtual discussion exploring the latest research and technology in aquaculture production systems for improved livelihoods.

19:00-20:30 (UTC+8) / 13:00-14:30 (UTC+2)
The Advancing Climate-Smart Aquaculture Technologies (ACliSAT) project promotes climate-resilient and sustainable aquaculture practices of the Nile Tilapia for different water and environmental conditions in Egypt, Eritrea, and Ethiopia. The project's work focuses on aquaculture systems such as the Improved Pond Raceway Aquaculture System (IPRAS) and Integrated Aquaculture-Agriculture system (IAA), that optimize water use efficiency and adapt to different environmental conditions are important for successful tilapia farming in arid lands.
WorldFish and IFAD are organizing a joint webinar to share the research findings, knowledge, and know-how on the climate-smart aquaculture systems gathered from the ACliSAT project. The webinar aims to promote IPRAS and IAA as production systems that enable intensification of Tilapia production, the efficient use of natural resources and feed nutrients, and managing waste and loss by re-using wastes such as pond water and mud as crop fertilizer.
Climate-smart aquaculture systems are of particular importance in mitigating the pressing effects of climate change as well as adapting to the changing climate conditions that directly affect the food security, nutrition, and livelihoods of millions of vulnerable people in developing countries.
