Food for the city – from the city: Results from CITYFOOD

Upscaled aquaponics (the water-reusing production of fish and crops) can produce a relevant contribution to a city’s sustainability. The project CITYFOOD investigates the potential of upscaled urban aquaponics to meet the demands of growing urban population. The project developed different models and utilised living labs in Brazil, Norway, and Germany and is funded in the SUGI Nexus call.

“CITYFOOD identified significant causal link chains concerning the Food-Water-Energy nexus at the aquaponic facility level, and causal relations of a production relocation to Berlin”
