Feeding rapidly growing urban populations requires innovative solutions that ensure efficient water, energy, and nutrients management. CITYFOOD investigates quasi-closed loop integrated aqua-agriculture (IAAC) systems to address this global challenge.

IAAC systems produce fish and plants, while re-using the fish water as fertiliser in nearly emission-free facilities. CITYFOOD will develop strategies to further the popularity and application of this space and resource friendly food production system in urban areas. The multidisciplinary project team will involve city planners, urban farmers, scientists, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and engaged citizens to reach its goals.
