The CPWF community-based fish culture project seeks to develop technologies and institutional arrangements to support collective fish culture in the flood season. The development of collective approaches to fish culture with local stakeholders has met with varying degrees of success. This has led to a deeper consideration of context and its contribution to the success or failure of collective action under differing socio-ecological conditions. The current report provides a landscape level characterization of seasonal floodplains in two of these areas. We compare the Ganges seasonal floodplain agro-ecology in Bangladesh to that in the Mekong Delta of Cambodia and Vietnam.
