Research Themes

Sustainable Increases in Productivity

The CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) draws on the technologies developed by CGIAR and partners to meet the prioritized needs of communities. It works with communities to further adapt solutions to sustainably improve productivity. More

Improved Nutrition

The CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) aims to promote sustainable increases in productivity to provide stable access to nutritious foods, such as fish and vegetables, which improve health and also provide supplemental income. More

Gender Equality

The CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) focuses on the causes and consequences of gender inequality and on transforming the underlying causes. AAS gender research investigates how resource-poor women and men access and use resources, who makes decisions, whose priorities are addressed, how women and men benefit from or are impacted by development alternatives, and how power is negotiated and influences well-being. More

Equitable Access to Markets

The CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) value chain research focuses on enhancing incomes, providing quality employment options and stimulating better and more equitable participation in the value chain for the poor and vulnerable, especially women. More

Resilience & Adaptive Capacity

Through research on adaptive capacity and resilience, the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) seeks to improve management of land and water resources, strengthen fisheries governance, improve preparedness to respond to climate change and natural disasters and introduce and disseminate climate-smart technologies and practices. More

Empowering Policies & Institutions

The CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) recognizes that coherent policies, good governance and strong institutions can have a powerful influence on people’s lives. AAS focuses on the identifying and implementing effective policies and institutional practices that support resilience, livelihood improvement, and social equity in aquatic agricultural systems. More

Effective Knowledge, Sharing & Learning

Through research on knowledge sharing and learning processes, the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) seeks to enhance community and stakeholder capacity to innovate and influence how agricultural research and development is conceptualized and implemented globally. More
