Climate variability has a profound influence on aquaculture and fisheries in South Asia, including the service industry and value chains. Progress in weather and sub-seasonal/seasonal forecasting has significantly increased the information available. Yet gaps still exist in the delivery and impact of climate information services (CIS), including reliability, uncertainty, scaling and delivery. Timely, reliable and contextualized CIS can, therefore, be used in decision making to reduce climate risk provided that risks factors and associated uncertainties are well identified, characterized, and prioritized. In this line, CaFFSA (Capacitating farmers and fishers to manage climate risks in South Asia) project funded by CGIAR research programme on Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) aims to bring innovation in the delivery of CIS to approximately 100,000 fish farming households in Bangladesh (Khulna, Sylhet, Rajshahi and Rangpur divisions). The project has several national (BMD, DoF, BFRI, Private hatcheries) and international partners (CIMMYT, ICRISAT, WorldFish, IRI), and been working in a consortium.
