24.08.2022 - What is the future of the sustainable aquaculture sector?

Dr. Jorge Marco Renau, Research Associate at the Universidad de los Andes, received funding for a research project assessing global aquaculture production systems. Aquaculture contributes significantly to the achievement of SDG 2 (Zero Hunger), 8 (Economic Growth), 12 (Responsible Consumption), and 14 (Life Below Water).

The project focuses on three broad actions that policymakers can pursue to support sustainable aquaculture’s contribution to food security and economic growth:

  1. improve spatial management
  2. facilitate adaptation to climate change and climate change policy
  3. avoid impeding innovation.

 The project is financed by the Environment for Development Initiative and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
