Description

A short video on the multi-beneficial uses of (fish)ponds and its integration with agriculture in flood-based areas in Malawi. By using the runoff from roads to drain into a pond, Lilongwe University in Malawi is practicing an exemplary integrated management approach. The runoff from roads is drained into a pond which is then used as a fish pond and to foster drip irrigation. In addition to fish cultivation, the researchers are using the fish as biological control for bilharzia.
