Abstract: "Climate change poses new challenges to the sustainability of fisheries and aquaculture systems, with serious implications for the 520 million people who depend on them for their livelihoods and the nearly 3 billion people for whom fish is an important source of animal protein. To help meet these challenges, climate change research at the WorldFish Center aims to work with partners to: 1. focus climate change responses where they are most needed by assessing and mapping the vulnerability of fishery- and aquaculture-dependent people and regions to the impacts of climate change; 2. reduce people’s vulnerability to these impacts by identifying appropriate adaptation strategies; 3. contribute to climate change mitigation by identifying ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sequester carbon in aquatic production systems; and 4. build local, national and regional capacity to implement adaptation and mitigation strategies for fisheries and aquaculture by informing policy processes."
