INMED aquaponics in Peru

INMED Andes is facilitating the use of aquaponics (a combination of soilless crop production and fish farming) to promote better nutrition in schools and combat the widespread problem of childhood anemia. This closed-loop system produces continuous harvests of fresh vegetables for school meals without the use of chemicals or pesticides. School-based aquaponic systems serve as a teaching tool to promote healthy eating habits, food security and better hygiene among students. Aquaponics is also gaining support as an economic development tool for entrepreneurs and disadvantaged farmers in rural areas affected by climate change.
