How tilapia are tackling malnutrition in Timor-Leste
Timor-Leste is surrounded by water, but most people in inland areas lack access to fish, consuming as little as 4 kg of fish per person per year, explains a recent WorldFish blog post.
As a result, insuring inland communities have access to fish is a major focus of the Partnership for Aquaculture Development in Timor-Leste Phase 2 (PADTL2) project (2020–2023). The project is led by WorldFish, funded by the New Zealand Aid Program, and contributes to the CGIAR Research Program on Fish Agri-food Systems (FISH).
