Strategies and lessons learned from field deployments of aquaponics and other intensive, climate-smart agricultural techniques.
The field of aquaponics has grown significantly in recent years because of its unique ability to increase food security with the production of produce as well as dietary protein. While researchers continue to push the potential of this approach, real world implementations are providing insights into the social and economic challenges that come to bear on individuals and communities as they attempt to adopt this climate smart agricultural practice. This year’s symposium will highlight several aquaponic projects in locations across the globe where important lessons have been learned and will be shared to improve future projects. This is a unique opportunity for organizations that are considering deployment of aquaponics systems to learn from and connect with other professionals and thought leaders in the field.
Scheduled presentations and events dealing with practical aquaponic innovations include:
- From Grassroots to the Vanguard: Small-Scale Innovations as Models for Global Solutions
