There are more than four million small household ponds in Bangladesh that have the potential to be significant sources of food and income for local farmers, especially women. This ecologically-focused project aims to increase household access to fish for nutrition and income by diversifying ecosystems in shaded household ponds. It works with 60 women who act as researchers utilizing their household ponds. By engaging women in the research process, the project expects to develop more appropriate solutions to local problems and to promote positive changes in gender norms related to decision-making in the household, access to knowledge, leadership and nutrition.
