This report describes results from the sociological components of research conducted under the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID) funded project 'The use of Sluice Gates for Stock Enhancement and Diversification of Livelihoods.' The objectives of this sociological research were to understand: the economic role of fish and fishing in the community; the social/institutional framework of fisheries, farming and water control; the social effects of altered sluice gate operation; and community expectations/views/hopes for fishing and farming. The two research sites were the Pabna Flood control and Irrigation System (PIRDP) and the Compartmentalisation Pilot Project (CPP) in Tangail, Bangladesh.
