Two foreign China-aid projects by a research center in Wuxi, East China's Jiangsu province, were recently listed among the Good Practices in South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Sustainable Development (Volume 4).

The Practices were launched by the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation, UN member states, relevant UN agencies and other partners.

The two cases of the Freshwater Fisheries Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences are poverty alleviation through the development of the tilapia industrial chain in Tanzania and the technical extension and application of sustainable aquaculture in Namibia and Mozambique.

FFRC has carried out several surveys on the aquaculture industry in Tanzania, helped enterprises in the aquaculture industry in Tanzania and China build partnerships, compiled manuals for farming tilapia, offered guidance on the breeding of tilapia, and trained local talent.

For the latter program, FFRC trained 88 researchers and fishermen for the two countries, distributed more than 600 technical manuals on aquaculture, and donated experimental apparatus, including water quality test boxes, microscopes, and dissolved oxygen meters, to them.

FFRC experts proposed developing aquaculture in Namibia and Mozambique according to their local circumstances, a move which was praised by the fishery sector, fishery technicians, and fishermen in both countries.

As the research and training reference center for aquaculture and inland fishery of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FFRC has in recent years cooperated with UN to perform various South-South Cooperation tasks.
