CRP 1.1 was presented at the 4th Fund Council Meeting in April 2011. CRP1.1 targets the poor and highly vulnerable populations of the dry areas. It aims to develop technology, policy and institutional innovations to improve livelihoods, using an integrated systems approach. The program focuses on four strategic research themes (SRTs ) which cut across five focus regions. This CRP was approved with conditions at the meeting and subsequently received unconditional approval of inception phase & conditional approval of overall program & budget on Nov. 9, 2011.

There are many options for enhancing food production from fish in managed aquatic systems.The most appropriate technology, however, will vary from place to place, and the conditions under which one technology is prefered over another are still not well defined.

This paper applies the principles of water-use accounts, developed in the first of the
series, to the São Francisco basin in South America. The São Francisco Basin lies wholly
within Brazil. There are several major dams and wetlands in the Basin.
Net runoff is about 16% of total precipitation. Grassland is the most extensive land use,
covering 59% of the Basin and uses 48% of the water. Rainfed agriculture covers 23%
of the basin, but uses 14% of the water in the Basin. Forest and woodland cover 16% of

This project supports the Wetlands Alliance, an extensive network of organizations —government, civil and NGOs— actively engaged in developing innovative solutions to poverty alleviation. The Alliance helps local partners to build the capacity they need to work effectively with communities that they are supporting.

This report is a synthesis of research implemented for the project on Wetlands-based livelihoods in the Limpopo basin: balancing social welfare and environmental security. The research was motivated by the dependency of many people on wetlands for their livelihoods. It was therefore founded on the basis that the potential of wetlands to contribute to livelihoods is closely related to their ability to maintain ecosytem functions (such as regulating river flows), which is a consequence of their unique hydrological characteristics.
