The Panel survey on Integrated Aquaculture-Agriculture (IAA)was conducted among the indigenous communities in northern and northwestern region of Bangladesh (Netrokona, Sherpur, Rangpur, Joypurhat, Dinajpur). The aim of the survey was to understand the performance, determinants and impact of IAA value chain activities. Entire data sets contains there file, one contains three wave (2007, 2009 and 2012) panel data on IAA value chain participation and welfare impacts, and other two contains cross sectional data on cost and return of value chain activities as well as farmers perception on socio-environmental impact of IAA versus rice-monoculture. Whole data sets contains information on household socioeconomic characteristics, cost and return of IAA value chain activities, farmers perception on IAA versus rice monoculture, welfare outcome variables.
The data was collected in three districts (Kersa, Omonada and Bako-Tibe) in Oromia regional state, Southwestern Ethiopia. The data was collected from 228 farmers during October-November 2015. The questionaire was developed after a series of focus group discussions and key informant interviews in the study area.
Overlaying the number of marginality dimensions with percentage of people living below 1.25$/day. This map is included in a global study on mapping marginality focusing on Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. The Dimensions of Marginality are based on different data sources representing different spheres of life. The poverty dataset used in this study is based on calculations by Harvest Choice. The underlying Marginality map is based on the approach on Marginality Mapping (http://www.zef.de/fileadmin/webfiles/downloads/zef_wp/wp88.pdf).

This survey was carried out with around 400 households in the 5 districts of Uttar Pradesh India from March 2015 to June 2015. The survey deals with agriculture, energy use, consumption, livelihoods, education and health of the households.
The author examines the dynamics of participation in and welfare impact of integrated aquaculture-agriculture (IAA) value chain by using three-year panel data from indigenous households in the northern and north-western regions of Bangladesh. By different panel estimation methods he analyses the IAA value chain participation dynamics and indicates that education and household size, access to extensions and market information, community-based organisations (CBO) membership are positively associated with participation and continuing participation in IAA value chain activities. Welfare impact results indicate that IAA value chain participation is positively correlated to household income and consumption frequency of some goods, particularly fish. Assessment of the comparative socio-environmental impacts of rice monoculture and rice-fish based IAA practices suggests that rice-fish based IAA is a sustainable alternative to rice monoculture.
