  • My Community Play all

    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.
