CRSP researcher Yang Yi of the Asian Institute of Technology was a formal invitee to and participant of a workshop held 18 to 28 September 2000 at the Internation-al Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR), James Yen Center, Cavite, Philippines. It was organized by IIRR, the International Development Research Center (IDRC), the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia-Pacific (NACA), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO-Rome), the International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM), Deutsche Welthungerhilfe (DWW), and the Netherlands Embassy in the Philippines. The purpose of the workshop was to produce a resource book entitled, Utilizing Different Aquatic Environments for Small-Scale Aquaculture and to facilitate the exchange and documentation within the Southern Hemisphere of best practices or good management practices that are productive, equitable, and sustainable. Yi presented three papers:
Yang Yi and C.K. Lin, 2000. Role of low-cost fertilization in inland pond aquaculture.
Yang Yi, C.K. Lin, and J.S. Diana, 2000. Recycling feeding wastes through integration of intensive and semi-intensive culture.
Yakupitiyage, A. and Yang Yi, 2000. Feeds in small-scale aquaculture.
The publication that emerges from the workshop will be copyright-free and will feature technologies, strategies, processes, and tools that are built on existing knowledge, have been field-tested, are replicable for wider sharing, and address real community needs. This publication will be available in April.
