Integrated fish–vegetable farming (Aquaponics) technology for sustainable land management and food security and climate resilient Communities in the Tain portion of the Black Volta Basin.
Integrated fish–vegetable farming (Aquaponics) technology for sustainable land management and food security and climate resilient Communities in the Tain portion of the Black Volta Basin.
The project integrated fish–vegetable farming (Aquaponics) technology for sustainable land management seeks to promote aquaculture and food security to build a climate resilient communities in the Tain portion of the Black Volta Basin. This project will develop the capacities of local farmers to invest in organic agro ecological farming practices which combine fishing farming with vegetable and crop cultivation. It will be achieved through i) training of small holder farmers in integrated fish–vegetable farming (aquaponics) technology; ii) Supporting champion farmers to invest in aquaponic farming systems as alternative livelihood option and supporting youth farmers in Degedege, Yabraso, Badu, Drobo, Tanokrom and Nsawkaw to invest in integrated fish-vegetable farming system.
The project will minimize overfishing in the Black Volta Lake and promote organic farming.
