The Community-based Fish Culture in Seasonal Floodplains and Irrigation Systems (CBFC) project is a five year research project supported by the Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF), with the aim of increasing productivity of seasonally occurring water bodies through aquaculture. The project has been implemented in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Mali and Vietnam, where technical and institutional options for community based aquaculture have been tested. The project began in 2005 and was completed in March 2010. In the context of the CP-35 project, this visit follows up on a preliminary assessment of livelihoods and institutions in Komio village, Mali conducted by consultants Joffre and Lajaunie. The objective of the visit was to determine how stocking mares around Komio village may impact livelihoods and access rights to aquatic resources. Additional insights were gained from the governance experiences and livelihood impacts of village irrigation schemes (PIVs).
