This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
An integrated management system that presents a new take on systems that
provide multiple products, especially fish and crops, is improving the
livelihoods of both farmers and fishers. Floodplains are under threat
from overexploitation and degradation, and in the past management has
often put more stress on rice production at the expense of fisheries and
other natural resources on which the poor depend. The new model aims to
maximize the joint benefits of crops and fish for all stakeholders.
These options are used at two sites in Bangladesh, Narail and Tangail,
where the community has independently adopted the ideas. The practices
have spread to adjacent areas, and have since been introduced at three
more sites in the country.
