Integrated aquaculture based on sustainable water recirculating system for the Victoria Lake Basin (VicInAqua)
VicInAqua is a medium-scale focused research project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 689427.
On this project 11 partners from 7 European and African countries aims at developing an integrated approach for water management by providing an integral, sustainable, innovative, cost effective and robust solution for water sanitation combined with the demand for clean water in aquaculture and irrigation in the Lake Victoria basin.
VicInAqua develops innovative multipurpose self-cleaning water filtration solutions adapted for sanitation of different wastewater streams, which will be reused in Recirculation Aquaculture Systems (RAS) and Agriculture Irrigation. The technological development and demonstration at pilot scale at Kisumu- Kenya is combined with participative measures like roundtable sessions, study visits and info sessions aimed at capacity building of local and regional actors.
A special focus is set on the robustness, energy efficiency and economic viability of the VicInAqua solutions in order to be adapted to the local challenges and to achieve a high acceptance in peri-urban areas, where the sanitation infrastructures are poor and the demand for water high.
