INMED AQUAPONICS

THE RIGHT SOLUTION AT THE RIGHT TIME

The Sustainable Amazon Foundation (FAS) and INMED Partnerships for Children (INMED) are partnering to build an Aquaponics Center of Excellence to strengthen food security, economic recovery and sustainable livelihoods for all indigenous and traditional peoples of the Amazon, while protecting critical habitat and biodiversity in the Amazon basin.

Do you know how an aquaponics system works?

Train local population, especially indigenous youth, women and other community members on aquaponics farming to increase capacity, provide local opportunities for food security and economic growth.

Integrate aquaponics production with broader local agroforestry and permaculture efforts.

Conduct research to continuously improve and diversify aquaponics production for indigenous crops/species and to protect biodiversity.

Coordinate services for all local producers through the Center of Excellence to maximize local revenue and sustainability.

Build local markets to create local demand for aquaponics produce and meet nutritional needs.

Why support this project

The Amazon is one of the world's most important global climate regulators, with the largest tropical ecosystem on the planet. Its trees absorb and store 20% of the world's carbon from the atmosphere. Continued degradation of the Amazon’s biosphere affects the world’s food supply, medicinal discoveries and treasured natural resources and increases the severity of wildfires, flooding and other destructive climate events.


INMED Aquaponics® presents a solution that allows the sustainable permanence of indigenous and traditional populations in their habitat.
