    The term “aquapark” refers to an innovative aquaculture organizational model designed to facilitate and empower small-scale aquafarmers at every stage of the aquaculture value chain. This model encompasses comprehensive planning, zoning, and infrastructure development for roads, water and electricity, as well as vital aquaculture inputs like seed, feed, extension services and access to markets. The aquapark model is an important innovation to improve environmental, social and economic performance of aquaculture as a mean of sustainable development, which needs support from government aquaculture development strategy and policies, and investment from sector and private companies.This manual also contributes to FAO's efforts in advancing the Blue Transformation initiative. It offers valuable insights to FAO and its Member Nations, enhancing their comprehension of the aquapark concept and enabling the formulation of effective strategies for the implementation of this model to foster sustainable aquaculture development.

    This report comprises the workshop proceedings and the strategy for regional cooperation that was developed by the participants; the latter was the principal output of the workshop. The major inputs to the discussions to craft the strategy were the country reports that described their priorities in five areas, namely research and technology development, manpower development, extension and information, management and policy; and their own assessment of their weaknesses and strengths in these area s. The deliberations on regional priorities and technical areas for cooperation and potential co-operators in each area were informed by presentations from institutions, projects and agencies that are working or have associations with either or both the Central Asia and Caucasus regions. A significant result of this process is a matrix that matches potential co-operators (provider country or institution) and hosts (recipient country) for various and specific capacity building needs, which were i dentified as common regional or subregional priorities. To start the programme, the workshop recommended seven activities that need to be initiated as soon as possible, as follows: (1) development of regional projects, organization of training/workshops, and capacity development on feed production and management on a pilot scale; (2) provision of technologies and equipment for the development and production of specialized fish feeds for different species from local raw materials; (3) training wo rkshop on project development designed to improve project development skills by actually formulating projects that are based on the identified priorities; (3) an action plan for the upgrading of national laboratories in order to comply with international standards for certification of fish and fish products; (4) workshop on harmonization of institutional management structure and legislation in fisheries and aquaculture in accordance with international fisheries and aquaculture laws/policy for re sponsible fisheries and aquaculture; (5) development of an action plan to identify activities for sharing and providing broodstock and seed material that are of high genetic quality, complemented by training on broodstock management; (6) programmes for increasing and conserving endemic fish stocks in inland water reservoirs; and (7) establishing a working group linked to the TAC (Technical Advisory Committee) of CACFish (Central Asian and Caucasus Regional Commission on Fisheries), to support th e follow-up of the scoping workshop recommendations and immediate action plans. This set of recommendations was addressed to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and China but should also involve concerned government institutions, technical experts of governments and regional institutions in certain areas, and the CACFish.
