Implementing aquaponics in the Gaza Strip

Reducing vulnerability to food and nutrition insecurity in dry, urban areas and protracted crisis situations through efficient resource use


Food production in the Gaza Strip is constrained by an arid environment and limited access to steady sources of water. This threatens the food security and nutrition of local communities, which is further undermined by a wider context of protracted crisis and continued restricted access to critical livelihood resources for fishing and farming. Since 2010, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has been helping to enhance the resilience of at-risk populations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip through donor-funded projects that focus on protecting and strengthening their food security and livelihoods. One of the methods used by FAO is aquaponics, integrated fish and plant production.
