Project title:

Aquaponics as a farming system to achieve sustainable development

Research question

Can we grow plants without land?

Identify the local environmental/climate problem you want to investigate

The problems we can identify in our locality and on which we will base our research work are: increasing desertification, worn-out and eroded land that cannot be cultivated, and the scarce precipitation that hinders plant growth.

Project topic


Describe how you plan to investigate the problem identified and which data you plan to analyse.

After identifying the topic, we will divide the research project into the following phases:

1. Information search about the aquaponics system, its benefits in agriculture, and examples of completed projects.
2. Design and implementation of an aquaponics system that will serve us to study and analyze the feasibility of implementing this cultivation system in our environment.
3. Collect data and prepare a document showcasing the achievements obtained in this research process.
4. Communicate our results to the scientific community.

Your feedback

Expert feedback Phase 1 - 2023-2024
Is the suggested problem a problem that the students can actually investigate? Is it feasible, realistic? Please explain why or why not. Is the relation with climate/local environment worked out? Where necessary indicate the wider scientific context to which the identified problem belongs.
