The terraces are mainly distributed along the south part of the Honghe Ailao Mountain and spr ead in four counties: Honghe, Yuanyang, Lvchun, and Jinping, covering an area of about 70,000 ha. Hani Rice Terraces are one of best examples to show farmers’ wisdom in China. The Hani villages are built on the mountainsides, above the village are the flourishing forests and the terraces are just below the villages. It is amazing that in the Hani Rice Terraces there are no reservoirs but water supply is abundant. The forest, village, terrace and river compose the typical ecological landscape of the Hani Rice Terraces. The Hani People, their indigenous agricultural technologies, their selection of the settlement site and their traditional customs for environment protection and conservation all show a harmonious relationship between human and nature, and their relationship in the human society as well.

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Shanghai Ocean University (SHOU) convened the workshop “International Promotion Programme on Social Impact of Rice-Fish Farming” from 4 to 8 December 2018 in Shanghai, China. The workshop was attended by 17 international experts and 39 Chinese experts, including representatives from the Chinese government, academia and cooperating organizations. Integrated aquaculture practices such as rice-fish farming, have proven to make valuable contributions to sustainable development in many places around the world, especially with small-scale stakeholders. However, the extent of the social impacts of rice-fish farming practices needs to be better assessed and documented. The main objectives of the workshop were: i) to provide an exchange platform for a better understanding of the social impact of rice-fish farming worldwide; ii) to examine various dimensions of the social impact of rice-fish farming, such as poverty reduction, traditional/indigenous arts and cultures, nutrition and gender equity and equality; and iii) to increase the awareness on the social impact of innovative agro-aquaculture systems. This document summarizes the preparation, process and conclusions of the workshop.
