Responsible Aqualculture Development for Food Security and Economic Progress is a short course organized by Wageningen UR Centre for Development Innovation to focus on insufficient availability of inputs (feeds, fingerlings, credit); lack of trained personnel; unsuitable and unsupportive legal framework and other factors that are affecting aquaculture development.
- train policy makers, researchers, teachers, extension officers, farm managers and private sector representatives in making strategic sector management plans in line with the FAO ecosystem approach to aquaculture;
- orient them about the possibilities and design principles of more intensive aquaculture techniques such as recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS);
- make them familiar with better management practices and certification standards that are growing in importance on the western food market
Location: The Netherlands
