    The FAO has a Blue Transformation roadmap to ensure aquatic foods contribute more significantly to ending hunger and poverty. Sustainable aquaculture expansion is a major objective of Blue Transformation. To release the potential of this sector, Africa’s aquaculture requires comprehensive development and business strategies, encompassing legislative and management frameworks, technological development, access to feeds and seeds, financial incentives, biosecurity controls, and innovative value chains tailored to national realities.This first collection of examples highlights a handful of successful aquaculture stories from small and medium stakeholders in Africa, revealing the awakening of a sleeping giant on the continent.These examples are drawn from different countries and illustrate the significant development potential of aquaculture when the necessary commitment and resources are in place.

    The Training Workshop on Aquapark Establishmtn and Operation is scheduled to be held from 23 to 29 October 2023 in Wuxi, China. In aquaculture, “aquapark” refers to an aquaculture organizational model developed to support small-scale aquafarmers throughout the sustainable aquaculture value chain. It involves incorporating fragmented production farms with limited productivity and efficiency into a more effective value chain formed by aggregated aquaparks. These aquaparks are overseen by specialized management service provision units, all within a community based coordination and support framework. The workshop intends to achieve the following: (i) introduce the aquapark concept, provide an global overview of aquapark development and share best practices on the establishment and operation of aquaparks in China; (ii) provide government officers from around the globe with enhanced capacity building and training to learn from the Chinese experience in aquapark planning, establishment, operation, management and public private-partnerships; and (iii) encourage and guide participants to prepare proposals on aquapark establishment in their respective countries. Invited participants include government officers, FAO country programme officers from Africa, Latin America and Caribbean and Asia-Pacific as well as other relevant actors.

    Sustainable agricultural mechanization in China
    A comprehensive review
    2023
    Also available in:

    Sustainable agricultural mechanization covers all levels of farming and processing technologies, and takes into consideration technological, economic, social, environmental and cultural aspects when contributing to the sustainable development of agrifood systems. This publication strives to comprehensively and systematically summarize the status and strategies of China's agricultural mechanization development, its impacts, experiences and practices, and business models. Furthermore, the publication investigates the related investment and policy recommendations to reach the goal of agricultural and rural modernization by 2035, to drive smallholder farmers to enter modern agriculture, and to achieve sustainable development. It is estimated that by 2035, agricultural production in China will predominantly be mechanized. The concept of integrating mechanization and digitalization will be applied to agricultural mechanization management and operation monitoring and services, and mechanization will comprehensively support all agricultural and rural modernization. The development of sustainable agricultural mechanization in China provides cases and examples of innovations with global value, not only for developing countries but in particular for middle-income countries and emerging countries. This publication is part of the Country Investment Highlights series under the FAO Investment Centre's Knowledge for Investment (K4I) programme.
