Innovation Description

In many parts of the Indian Ocean Region, access to fresh and nutritious foods can be limited. The Oasis Aquaponic System is a low-cost, low-resource-use, and solar-powered household ‘farm-in-a-box’ capable of producing 90 kilograms of tilapia and 270 kilograms of vegetables annually – providing reliable and healthy food for households and small communities. This system has the potential to dramatically impact household level nutrition in remote and island communities as well as urban settings.
