WorldFish is an international, nonprofit research organization that harnesses the potential of fisheries and aquaculture to reduce hunger and poverty. Globally, more than one billion people obtain most of their animal protein from fish and approximately 800 million depend on fisheries and aquaculture for their livelihoods.
WorldFish is a member of CGIAR, a global agriculture research partnership for a food secure future.
The My Community series provides a unique insight into the lives of people living on the edge between water and land.
Coastal zones, river deltas and floodplains are home to over 700 million people worldwide, many of whom are poor, and depend on fishing and farming to support their families.
My Community is a selection of short films commissioned by the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems that gives a voice to these communities as they tell their stories for the first time.
The Program aims to reduce poverty and improve food security for 50 million people living in aquatic agricultural systems throughout Africa, Asia and the Pacific.
