Improving food security and nutrition in resource limited urban areas

The presenter is Christopher Somerville, who has been working for FAO projects in the West Bank and Gaza Strip since 2012.
Friday 28 October 2016
2:00 – 3:00 pm (Rome time),
FAO HQ – AGD Meeting Room (B640)

Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (growing soil-less plants). Both practices mutually benefit from each other’s presence in one production unit. The fish waste provides an organic food source for the growing plants and the plants provide a natural filter for the water the fish live in.

Aquaponics can help improve the nutrition situation of food insecure families with limited access to low cost, organic, locally produced food. It has the potential to revolutionize the way in which food production can be integrated into urban environments by transforming traditionally inert surfaces into productive spaces that can generate income for families.
