CITYFOOD Knowledge Base
Feeding a growing population is a global challenge which strains food, water, and energy. CITYFOOD is a research project investigating a solution - integrating aquaponic systems into urban environments. Aquaponics is an innovative and resource-efficient agriculture method that combines aquaculture with hydroponics, yielding two sources of food while reducing the resource footprint and ecological impact. To research and scope its viability, researchers require a standardized vocabulary; shared resources; peer-reviewed information; and international collaboration. To facilitate this, we built a robust online portal of applied research, where academics, community leaders, and practitioners can go to research, locate farms, and review best practices.
