Solar-Aquaculture Habitats as Resource-Efficient and Integrated Multilayer Production Systems (SHRIMPS) Project Dates: August 2019 - May 2023
Share
PROJECT OBJECTIVE

The SHRIMPS project aims to reduce freshwater consumption, wastewater, CO2 emissions and pollutant inputs as well as achieve farms’ greater resilience to the impacts of climate change. It will also improve the economic situation of rural areas in the Mekong region, contribute to greater energy security, promote sustainable shrimp breeding methods and create a platform for international and interdisciplinary knowledge transfer.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The SHRIMPS project unites aquaculture research and solar energy expertise to reveal challenges and opportunities of a PV-shrimp system and to gain a deeper understanding of synergies and interactions between both layers. The SHRIMPS partners intend to develop a concept of a PV-shrimps production system, establishing aquavoltaics as a further dual land use management system that raises overall productivity of land, reduces water consumption and wastewater outflow, mitigates CO2-emissions, promotes adaptation strategies to climate change, fosters economic situation of rural areas in Mekong Delta, contributes to more security of energy supply, supports sustainable shrimp production technologies and establishes a platform for international and interdisciplinary knowledge transfer.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

GIZ supports Vietnamese authorities in the management of protected areas and sustainable forests, including the certification of timbers and introduction of payments to local people for their forest-related environmental services. In the Mekong Delta, climate change adaptation measures are supported, for example by building wave breakers along the coastline to protect the backlands against erosion as well as storms and floods. On the national level, GIZ is working with the Government of Viet Nam to achieve the country┬┤s Nationally Determined Contribution under the Paris Agreement to contribute to global climate change mitigation efforts.
