Guidelines for fish production in long term refugee situations in Africa


  • Renn, S.
  • Weirowski, F.


These guidelines provide general advice on potential benefits and implications of promoting aquaculture in refugee settlements and local host communities, specifically in Africa. In particular, they seek to highlight issues critical for translating aquaculture support in refugee situations into sustainable benefits for target populations. Aquaculture can help improve food and nutrition security and contribute to household incomes among refugees and neighbouring communities in sites with viable supplies of inputs (seed and feed) and service provisioning (training and technical extension).
