FOOD SECURITY. Aquaponik sebagai salah satu alternatif untuk membangun ketahanan pangan baik untuk skala rumah tangga maupun skala bisnis besar. Mari kita bangun ketahanan pangan, setidaknya dimulai dari rumah kita dengan budidaya ikan dan tanaman sayuran untuk konsumsi keluarga. (Dokumentasi Seminar Aquaponik IMCC 2018).
Salam Aquaponik. .
Salam Organik..
Salam Sehat. .

πŸ”’ Food Security Matters.
.
'Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life' (FAO).
.
By 2050, we need to provide enough food to feed around 9 billion people, meaning the demand for food will be ~60% greater than it is today. Many of the world's leading science experts are pulling together to meet the rising challenge of securing and sustaining agriculture and food production 🚜🌾
.
To achieve the goal, we must address a host of problems...
β€’ Populations are both growing πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ and ageing πŸ‘΅πŸΌπŸ‘΄πŸ» in developing countries. πŸ“ˆ
β€’ Developing nations are becoming more affluent. πŸ’°
β€’ With increasing affluence comes increased demand for animal produce, e.g. meat πŸ—, eggs 🍳 and milk. πŸ₯›
β€’ To produce more animals, we need to produce more grain. 🌾
β€’ But, land resources for growing crops is limited... Some of our land cannot be cultivated; around 40% of arable land is arid and with climate change will turn into desert.🌡
β€’ 28% of agriculture lies in water-stressed regions. As 1 kg of wheat requires 1,500 L of waterπŸ’§and 1 kg of beef requires 16,000 L πŸ’¦ water is in high demand.
β€’ Soils are being degraded by over-farming. πŸ“‰
β€’ The modern-day consumer demands more choice meaning exotic foods are delivered fresh to our supermarket shelves daily. πŸ›’πŸπŸ₯πŸ₯‘
β€’ This means more "Food miles" 🚚 which contributes to CO2 production and increases our carbon footprint πŸ‘£, contributing to global warming.
β€’ In under-developed counties, where much of the exotic produce is grown and exported, food supply is low leading to malnutrition and micronutrient deficiency, or "hidden hunger", amongst the population.
.
So what are the solutions to these problems?πŸ’‘
β€’ Increase yield per unit of land ⬆️ which means to fertilise and irrigate land more efficiently 🌿
β€’ Use drought-resistant or more tolerant crops 🌱
β€’ Find ways of using under-utilised crops/fruits 🍈 β€’ Develop alternative feedstocks for animals 🐜
β€’ Consume less meat πŸ– (especially in countries where over-consumption is common)
β€’ Eat locally to reduce food miles 🍽

Barbecued fish, boashi (banana flower) stir fry and rice. Oh the pleasures of island life. It is good that a portion of what we eat always comes from our gardens or is sourced locally.

Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth... these are one and the same fight. #🌱 #🌍
