A water and energy saving approach for global urbanization.
Aquaculture + Hydroponics = Aquaponics
What is CityFood?
Feeding rapidly growing urban populations requires innovative solutions to ensure efficient use of water, energy and nutrients in food production. The project CityFood, within the Sustainable Urban Growth Initiative (SUGI), co-funded by the EU and Belmont Forum, investigates how integrated aqua-agriculture (IAAC) systems can help address global food challenges by involving experts from food science, ecology, modelling and planning who are all interested in examining the role of multi-trophic food production systems in urban contexts.
