Smart Agroecology across the City
Smart Agroecology across the City
In accordance with the GEF SGP Country Programme Strategy, the project "Smart Agroecology across the City" aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere, to organize ecological lessons, to inform family households about successful agricultural practices adapted to climate change, to produce and use organic products in urban conditions, as well as to integrate the socially vulnerable groups and people with disabilities.
The main idea of the project is to organize the production of organic fertilizer and use it for the year-round cultivation of organic products (onion, spinach, arugula, dill, parsley, lettuce, radish, tomatoes). The grown products will be used in the framework of a social project that includes the integration of people with disabilities into social activities, namely: people with mental disabilities that shall participate in the preparation and delivery of meals to poor citizens.
The project will take place in Chisinau municipality, Buiucani sector, on the territory of Day rehabilitation center for people with disabilities of the PA Speranta si Sanatate.
There will be provided 2 premises: for the production of organic fertilizer and for the year-round cultivation of greenery.
The organic fertilizer will be produced by recycling the kitchen waste with colonies of living organisms – vermiculture. The received valuable fertilizer (biohumus) is now considerred as one of the most natural organic fertilizers.
The growing of ecologically clean crop products will be organized in one of the premises of the Center, by installing special shelving and special phyto-lighting. This will allow to obtain crops of healthy plants all the year round.
The project is addressing a number of key environmental problems, that people from the city face: a huge amount of waste that contributes to increasing carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere, a lack of quality food that affects people's health. The implementation of the project will reduce waste from the kitchen by 70%, and will also enable vulnerable groups of the population (poor and disabled) to have access to quality food products that are beneficial to health.
Thus, in an urban environment, shall be introduced an intelligent agro-technology, that will help to close the cycle: the kitchen waste is processed into fertilizer, which is used to grow plants that are eaten by humans.

Project Characteristics and Results
Inovative Financial Mechanisms
During the implementation of the project, every significant event and its results will be recorded in photo and video materials. Knowledge, accumulated experience and useful achievements received during the implementation of the project will be distributed through the Internet (GEF website, site of organizers and participants of the project, volunteer pages in social networks).
Gender Focus
It is important to note that both men and women who are members of the target group of the project belong to a very specific social group, namely, vulnerable segments of the population. Therefore, it is very difficult to give someone priority, as both are in the same difficult situation. Therefore, the project provides for absolutely equal rights for both men and women. Such an approach means that the project lacks activities "only for men" or "only for women". At each stage of project activities, every person, regardless of gender, can participate in any project activity.
