Food and energy Agropolitan City

Focus: Adaptation, Mitigation
Sector(s): Carbon reduction / Low-carbon transition, Food security / Urban agriculture

The Tshwane Food and Energy Center (TF&EC) will contribute to the city’s food security through livestock production and to its energy security through the establishment of a solar power plant and through the reuse of organic waste from livestock for the production of renewable energy (biogas). The concept relies on the establishment of a central ‘demonstration’ farm that serves as both an active farm for livestock production and a business support hub to deliver agricultural extension services. Small scale farmers will thus be connected and provided with integrated solutions for food and energy production.
