Objectives

 

General Objectives: 

To assist inland freshwater aquaculture farms in Thailand adapt to climate change through better farm and water management and to assess the value of aquaculture as an adaptation strategy.

 

Specific Objectives: 

  1. Improve understanding of effective ways to reduce flood- and low-flow related losses of aquaculture farms under current climate conditions.
  2. Assess risks of flood- and low-flow related losses of aquaculture farms under plausible future climates and watershed management practices
  3. Improve understanding of how the integration of aquaculture into livelihood systems affects the resilience of rural households to climate-related changes in water quality and quantity.
  4. Identify effective ways to reduce flood- and low-flood related losses of aquaculture farms as well as build resilience of livelihood systems under plausible future climate scenarios.
  5. Engage with key stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle to share research results through presentations, briefings, dialogue and documents.
