Yemen Fishing For Sustainable Solutions

Yemen is now one of 108 developing nations that receives Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE) - the latest developments and scientific literature on the environment facing climate change.

Yemen's main source of economic growth is in the fish industry. They have seen an increase in exports and fish volume in recent years. However, studies show that fish stock and production is on the decline. The online resources now available to developing nations like Yemen will provide citizens with sustainable solutions that allow them to adapt to ever-changing climate conditions.

The pooling of valuable environmental research began 2 years ago and has nearly 3,000 scientific journals in its library, with a value of $1.5 million per year.
