CityFood

CityFood aims to address a range of scientific, environmental, and social questions regarding supply chain optimization, resource use efficiency, food safety and regulatory acceptance of integrated aqua-agriculture as a sustainable form of food production to meet a growing population. Funded by the Belmont Forum and the NSF, the international CityFood team explores the potential of integrated aqua-agriculture systems (IAAC) for urban applications.

The UW branch of the project investigates conditions in built environments that can enable the urban integration of IAAC (also known as aquaponics).
