OUR IMPACT

Goals

This objective will be achieved through the following components: - Increased availability: Increased production, productivity and diversity of nutrient-rich fish. - Increased accessibility: Development, marketing and distribution of affordable, safe, nutritious fresh fish and fish-based products. - Increased consumption: Social behaviour change approaches targeting the whole family. -Improved food and nutrition security and scaling.

Objectives

The overall goal of this project is to improve food and nutrition security in the state of Odisha, India. The objective of this project is to increase the supply of and access to affordable, safe, nutrient-rich fish and fish products for increased consumption, through innovative, nutrition sensitive fisheries technologies and integrated approaches.

Impact Pathway

The project is composed of four main components, who also mark project goals with strategic activities that will support towards the achievement of panned target deliverables. These are as following: A. Increased availability - Increased production, productivity and diversity of nutrient-rich fish from innovative technologies of aquaculture and capture fisheries, as applied to household and community ponds, and inland freshwater reservoirs. B. Increased accessibility - Development, marketing and distribution of affordable, safe, nutritious fresh fish and fish-based products using production from aquaculture and capture fisheries, including Chilika Lake. Increased and expanded distribution to reach multiple population groups, in partnerships with the private sector and research institutes. C. Increased consumption - Social behaviour change approaches, targeting the whole family, to promote increased nutrient-rich fish and vegetable consumption, especially in women and young children; and increase knowledge and practice of essential nutrition and essential hygiene actions, in partnerships with relevant local government programs, non-government organizations (NGOs) and community-based organizations (CBOs). D. Improved food and nutrition security and scaling - Further scaling of innovative, nutrition-sensitive fisheries technologies and integrated approaches, through expanding and strengthening regional and national partnerships and collaborations, in particular, in West Bengal and Terai, Nepal.
