The resilience of inland fisheries to climate change

This detailed report, "Enhancing the resilience of inland fisheries and aquaculture systems to climate change", is interesting because it explores inland (freshwater) fisheries in wetland and arid areas, particularly in Africa. It examines the relationship between the need for adaptation of inland fisheries to climate change and the development of supportive governance structures.
This detailed report, "Enhancing the resilience of inland fisheries and aquaculture systems to climate change", is interesting because it explores inland (freshwater) fisheries in wetland and arid areas, particularly in Africa. It examines the relationship between the need for adaptation of inland fisheries to climate change and the development of supportive governance structures. Looking at the links between fishing, farming and livestock herding, it uses the concept of resilience in social-ecological systems. It finds that key strategies include, facilitating people’s geographical and occupational mobility, improving inter-sectoral water and land-use planning, and promoting forms of aquaculture that help build resilience of farming systems to seasonal and episodic water deficits. The full report by Edward H Allison, Neil L. Andrew, Jamie Oliver, Dec 2007 is attached below.
