To understand the aquatic feed sector in Zambia, Kenya and Nigeria and to inform subsequent impact
assessments of the Norad-Fasa project, the monitoring, evaluation, learning and impact assessment (MELIA)
unit at WorldFish, together with implementing partners, organized 2-day workshops across the three
countries. Using a participatory systems approach, the workshops brought together representatives of
governments, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), the private sector and farmers associations, as well
as small-scale feed millers, fish aggregators, processors and smallholder fish farmers, to explore the potential
socioeconomic impact of developing and scaling sustainable resilient feeds using local ingredients. The
participatory systems approach is an emerging methodology that uses the lens of systems thinking to
revolutionize impact assessment of projects by considering how they interplay with the environment that
each project is embedded in.
