Scaling up aquaculture development through triangular cooperation between Namibia, Spain, Viet Nam and FAO
Aquaculture production remains low in sub-Saharan Africa, with per capita consumption of only 9.1 kg/year. But there is great potential to expand the sector on the African continent, particularly through the use of south-south cooperation programmes. This project (PDF) by FAO is finding innovative ways to produce fish in remote areas. Farmed fish can provide additional income and could guarantee a steady supply to rural communities which currently have limited access to fish as part of their diet. One innovative programme is helping to improve aquaculture production in the Republic of Namibia through triangular cooperation between Namibia, Spain, Viet Nam and FAO.
