Request for Proposal

WorldFish is seeking proposal from full-service video agencies/individuals who are specialized in gender related awareness building video production for developing four videos for Aquaculture: Increasing Income, Diversifying Diets and Empowering women in Bangladesh project.

Background

WorldFish is an international, non-profit research organization that harnesses the potential of fisheries and aquaculture to reduce hunger and poverty. In the developing world, more than 1 billion people obtain most of their animal protein from fish and 250 million depend on fishing and aquaculture for their livelihoods. The WorldFish mission is to strengthen livelihoods and enhance food and nutrition security by improving fisheries and aquaculture. We pursue this through research partnerships focused on helping those who stand to benefit the most—poor producers and consumers, women and children. 

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded project “Aquaculture: increasing income, diversifying diets, and empowering women in Bangladesh and Nigeria” targets Bangladesh  where the growth of aquaculture provides significant opportunities to enhance pond productivity, the income of smallholder families, the diets and nutrition of vulnerable households and particularly women and children and the empowerment of women.

The project has been working in Rajshahi and Rangpur divisions in northwest Bangladesh, areas with high levels of poverty and malnutrition and significant development potential for aquaculture. Within the target divisions, WorldFish will strengthen partnerships with private sector businesses, investors and government to develop profitable value chains and transform local government policies to enable increased production and incorporate fish into nutritional improvement initiatives.

This is a 50 month project that started from November 2018 and will end in December 2022 and builds on the emerging opportunities for expanding markets for sustainable aquaculture.

Goal: In addition to market development and increased supply of fish, the project aims to enable increased women's decision-making power and control over resources, like income derived from fish farming and marketing in Bangladesh.
