Climate change is expected to influence several productive sectors, the most significant of which is agriculture. Agriculture comprises an important sector of the global economy that includes crops, livestock, and seafood. Agriculture, aquaculture, and fisheries are closely linked to the climate, with changes in climatic conditions able to drastically affect animal and plant productivity, which in turn has a direct impact on human well-being. Impacts of Climate Change on Agriculture and Aquaculture is a critical scholarly publication that provides an integrated assessment of climate change impacts on agriculture, aquaculture, and fisheries and explores a set of strategies to secure sustainable food security. While highlighting the associations between climate change, food security, and socio-economic development, the book establishes an inventory of good agricultural practices for the adaptation to climate change and presents solutions for making agricultural and food systems more sustainable. Featuring a wide range of topics such as carbon sequestration, ecosystem management, and desertification, this book is ideal for agriculturalists, environmentalists, fisheries, marine biologists, ichthyologists, government officials, academicians, policy makers, scientists, professionals, researchers, and students.

Double recirculating aquaponic systems (DRAPS) were developed as sustainable food production system and as alternative to conventional aquaculture and hydroponics. DRAPS allow the production of fish and plants under specific optimal conditions. One major subject of the present study was the comparison of vegetable production in DRAPS with conventional hydroponic production. For investigations Nile tilapia and African catfish were combined with tomatoes or lettuce. Furthermore, the connection point between fish and plants was studied in more detail to identify possible weaknesses of this point. Additional, the fertiliser and fresh water saving potential and the environmental relive by replacing nitrogen fertiliser by fish waste water was investigated. The results of this study demonstrate clearly the competiveness of DRAPS with conventional hydroponic systems in terms of plant quantity and quality aspects as well as sustainability issues. DRAPS is a highly promising system which must be investigated and improved further. Finally, it will contribute significantly to sustainable intensification and consequently to food safety.

Ecological intensification involves using natural resources such as land, water, soil nutrients, and other biotic and abiotic variables in a sustainable way to achieve high performance and efficiency in agricultural yield with minimal damage to the agroecosystems. With increasing food demand there is high pressure on agricultural systems. The concept of ecological intensification presents the mechanisms of ensuring high agricultural productivity by restoration the soil health and landscape ecosystem services. The approach involves the replacement of anthropogenic inputs with eco-friendly and sustainable alternates. Effective ecological intensification requires an understanding of ecosystems services, ecosystem's components, and flow of resources in the agroecosystems. Also, awareness of land use patterns, socio-economic factors, and needs of the farmer community plays a crucial role. It is therefore essential to understand the interaction of ecosystem constituents within the extensive agricultural landscape. The editors critically examined the status of ecological stress in agroecosystems and address the issue of ecological intensification for natural resources management. Drawing upon research and examples from around the world, the book is offering an up-to-date account, and insight into the approaches that can be put in practice for poly-cropping systems and landscape-scale management to increase the stability of agricultural production systems to achieve Ecological resilience. It further discusses the role of farmer communities and the importance of their awareness about the issues. This book will be of interest to teachers, researchers, climate change scientists, capacity builders, and policymakers. Also, the book serves as additional reading material for undergraduate and graduate students of agriculture, forestry, ecology, agronomy, soil science, and environmental sciences. National and international agricultural scientists, policymakers will also find this to be a useful read for green future.

The agri-food chain consumes about one third of the world’s energy production with about 12% of it for crop production and nearly 80% for processing, distribution, retail, preparation and cooking. The agri-food chain also accounts for 80-90% of total global freshwater use where 70% alone is for irrigation. Additionally, on a global scale, freshwater production consumes nearly 15% of the entire energy production. It can therefore be argued that making agriculture and the agri-food supply chain independent from fossil fuel use has a huge potential to contribute to global food security and climate protection not only for the next decades but also for the coming century. Provision of secure, accessible and environmentally sustainable supplies of water, energy and food must thus be a priority. One of the major objectives of the world’s scientists, farmers, decisions makers and industrialists is to overcome the present dependence on fossil fuels in the agro-food sector. This dependency increases the volatility of food prices and affects economic access to sustenance. This book provides a critical review of recent developments in solar, wind and geothermal energy applications in agriculture and the agro-food sector such as processing, distribution, retail, preparation and cooking.

Intensive tilapia co-culture is the commercial production of various species of tilapia in conjunction with one or more other marketable species. Tilapia are attractive as a co-cultured fish because of their potential to improve water quality, especially in penaeid shrimp ponds, by consuming plankton and detritus and by altering pathogenic bacterial populations while increasing marketable production. Following introductory chapters covering ecological aspects of co-culture, tilapia feeding habits, historical use, and new models, Tilapia in Intensive Co-Culture is divided into co-culture in freshwater and marine environments. Co-culture core information is presented on Vibrio control, high-rate aquaculture processes, aquaponics, tilapia nutrient profile, and tilapia niche economics and marketing in the U.S, and with carp, catfish, freshwater and marine shrimp in the Americas, the Middle East, and Asia. Tilapia in Intensive Co-Culture is the latest book in the prestigious World Aquaculture Society (WAS) Series, published for WAS by Wiley Blackwell. It will be of great use and interest to researchers, producers, investors and policy makers considering tilapia co-culture in terms of environmental and economic sustainability.

The State of the World's Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture presents the first global assessment of biodiversity for food and agriculture worldwide. Biodiversity for food and agriculture is the diversity of plants, animals and micro-organisms at genetic, species and ecosystem levels, present in and around crop, livestock, forest and aquatic production systems. It is essential to the structure, functions and processes of these systems, to livelihoods and food security, and to the supply of a wide range of ecosystem services. It has been managed or influenced by farmers, livestock keepers, forest dwellers, fish farmers and fisherfolk for hundreds of generations. Prepared through a participatory, country-driven process, the report draws on information from 91 country reports to provide a description of the roles and importance of biodiversity for food and agriculture, the drivers of change affecting it and its current status and trends. It describes the state of efforts to promote the sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity for food and agriculture, including through the development of supporting policies, legal frameworks, institutions and capacities. It concludes with a discussion of needs and challenges in the future management of biodiversity for food and agriculture. The report complements other global assessments prepared under the auspices of the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, which have focused on the state of genetic resources within particular sectors of food and agriculture.

Population growth and growing agricultural challenges necessitate the adoption of intensive and resource-efficient farming methods in Kenya. Following a case-study research approach, technical and economic feasibility of aquaponics as a locally suitable innovation, and mobile phone applications (“apps”) as an information diffusion tool were conducted. The research proves that aquaponics systems can be built with locally available production materials; that its production outperforms in-soil production for the chosen crop, and that farmers can successfully operate such a system when given training and support. However, considerable practical challenges, important cultural factors and a missing information and input network, render it unlikely that this production method will be taken up by many farmers in Kenya within the next decade. Mobile phone applications are a growing service sector, due to widespread mobile phone ownership and high cultural acceptance. In order to test if agricultural apps can be used as an information dissemination tool, an app for the aquaculture sector was built and tested with fish farmers in Kakamega County. The results show that while the farmers valued the information service provided, apps are not suitable to be used as a sole information medium, as direct contact and practical training are vital within the African culture. However, apps and digital platforms are very likely to increase in relevance in the near future, as the younger generations in particular use Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and as ICT services will ease the bottlenecks in the various value chains.

Aquaponics is one of several alternative food growing techniques that are being embraced by food growers worldwide. An aquaponic growing system that combines aquaculture (where growers raise aquatic animals such as snails and fish in tanks) and hydroponics (the process of raising plants in water and growing them without the use of soil). In this system of food growing, the water from the aquaculture portion of the system is fed into the hydroponic system. From there by-products are broken down by the nitrates and nitrites in plants, used as nutrients, and then re-circulated back into the system. Aquaponic gardening and farming enables growers to raise healthy food sources while preserving natural resources and the surrounding environment. Despite the many advantages this food production systems gives growers, there are several challenges that growers face in maintaining a healthy aquaponic growing system. A major concern that growers using this food production system need to address is the presence of algae. The presence of algae can have serious repercussions in the health and vitality of all organisms in an aquaponic grow system.

In Food City, a companion piece to Smartcities and Eco-Warriors, innovative architect and urban designer CJ Lim explores the issue of urban transformation and how the creation, storage and distribution of food has been and can again become a construct for the practice of everyday life. Food City investigates the reinstatement of food at the core of national and local governance -- how it can be a driver to restructure employment, education, transport, tax, health, culture, communities, and the justice system, re-evaluating how the city functions as a spatial and political entity. Global in scope, Food City first addresses the frameworks of over 25 international cities through the medium of food and how the city is governed. It then provides a case study through drawings, models, and text, exploring how a secondary infrastructure could function as a living environmental and food system operating as a sustainable stratum over the city of London. This case study raises serious questions about the priorities of our governing bodies, using architectural relationships to reframe the spaces of food consumption and production, analyzed through historical precedent, function and form. This study of the integration of food, architecture, and the development of future cities will both inspire and stimulate professionals and students in the fields of urban design and architecture.
