Description:

Aquaponics - Climate smart solutions to enhance food security in Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

Namibia is facing the worst drought in decades. In normal years about 2% of the country’s surface receives sufficient rainfall to grow crops. With the severe drought entering its fourth year, much of the agriculture in Namibia has declined. The drought forced the government to take drastic measures such as denouncing a state of emergency and 30% water cuts. The water shortage cripples Namibia's economy, raises unemployment rates and makes the country highly dependent on food imports. Namibia is looking for opportunities to increase national food production fitting its harsh climatic conditions. Innovative measures would cut costs resulting from food imports as well as strengthen national food security, and generate employment.
