Chapter
COVID-19 and response measures have major economic implications, including for global value chains, and these implications are gendered. Consequently, unlike other chapters that are highly researched, this epilogue is a collective thought piece with our initial thoughts that might form the basis of future research. Large inequalities between women,...

The significance of fish for human nutrition, health, and livelihoods is increasingly recognized by and for people around the world, especially in the Global South. However, fisheries and aquaculture do not equally benefit people who are engaged in and rely on it. This chapter brings together insights from current literature on small-scale and comm...
Article
A number of studies have highlighted the promising growth of Egyptian tilapia aquaculture and the role of genetically improved strains in this development, such as the Abbassa Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus, Linneaus, 1758). However, few studies have explored the link between aquaculture development and changes in fish demand among low-income...

Chapter
Full-text available
Studies have shown that gender norms and gender relations restrict the innovation capacity of women in aquatic agricultural systems. This chapter explores the converse question: in what ways do and can aquatic agricultural innovation programs, including new and improved practices, technologies and economic opportunities, affect gender norms? Much l...
Article
Full-text available
The ability of development interventions to catalyse and support innovation for—and by— women and men is undermined by lack of specific understanding about how gender norms interact with gender relations and what this means for innovation. This is also the case for Bangladesh despite substantive research and development investments in the past deca...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The objectives of the CGIAR Research Program Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH) are (i) to facilitate sustainable increases in gender-equitable, socially-equitable livelihoods returns from aquaculture production without creating adverse socioeconomic or environmental impacts, and (ii) to secure and enhance the contribution of small-scale fisheries to ge...

This brief describes a review of gender in the farmed fish chain of Bangladesh. There are major differences in the ways and degrees men and women can participate along—and benefit from—the aquaculture value chain in Bangladesh. These gender issues have received significant attention in the literature on the Bangladesh aquaculture sector, but have f...
Article
Full-text available
People living in and around the Barotse Floodplain are some of the poorest in Zambia due to many factors restricting their abilities to engage in activities to secure food and income. Women, and in particular resident women, are especially constrained given certain gender norms and power relations that hamper them from accessing and adequately bene...

Acknowledgments This paper was based on a workshop funded by the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems, with co-funding from the CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish. The projects included in this paper's analysis were funded by a broad range of donors. We would also like to thank all donors who supported this work through...
Article
There is growing appreciation of the role of aquaculture in diversifying livelihoods of the poor. However, prevailing cultural norms and values, and social relations often influence its development outcomes, which we explore in this study. Socio-cultural dynamics affect the capacity of resource-poor and marginalized groups for the adoption and rete...
Article
Full-text available
Many Zambians rely on wetlands, lakes, and rivers for their livelihoods. Social norms and power relations restrict access to natural resources provided by these aquatic agricultural systems for certain social groups, thus differentially impacting livelihood security (especially for women). A gender transformative lens and the concept of the “mascul...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Over the past few decades, scholars and practitioners working on gender and development issues have advocated for more in-depth analyses that explore and foster change in the social institutions that create and perpetuate gender inequalities. Gender integration approaches in a research and development context are thus not something new. However, ma...
