PN 2006-09: Lessons from Cambodia...Exploring the Potential of Inland Fisheries and Aquatic Resources in the Philippines

The Philippines and Cambodia both abound in numerous freshwater bodies and resources that provide an economic and food base for rural people in the inland areas. But while Cambodia has seriously assessed the economic value of these inland fisheries resources as an instrument to fight poverty through a recently concluded research project, the Philippines has yet to launch initial courses of action that would exploit the potentials of inland fisheries to help in poverty alleviation. This Policy Notes presents some possible lessons from the Cambodian project that may be applied in the Philippines.
