Evaluation of livelihood assets in community-based on-farm demonstration of IMTA in milkfish mariculture in Guimaras, Philippines
This study showed the need to develop the livelihood assets of rural communities to enable them to engage in aquaculture-based income generating activities. The SLA evaluation showed that the benefits in terms of its contribution to livelihood asset build-up is generally positive. While human, social and environmental capacities were improved, the financial and physical assets were dissipated and insufficient for many stakeholders with keen interest to participate in the communal project. Therefore, the recommendation is to organize more and bigger collaborative projects, such as this IMTA of milkfish, with emphasis on sustainable livelihood asset development to create significant economic impact to target beneficiaries.
