Sustainable urban farming in Singapore

Isabelle Durant, UNCTAD Deputy Secretary-Generaltoured an urban farm situated on the rooftop of a parking lot in a neighbourhood of Singapore. It’s run by Citiponics Pte Ltd, a start-up that has developed a very promising model of urban agriculture, with an economic approach that is circular, social, local, with zero waste and pesticides.

The project takes a unique approach in a totally urbanized country, with one of the highest population densities in the world, where rurality no longer exists and where food supply is based solely on imports. Danielle is the project’s co-founder.
