The INMED Aquaponics® Social Enterprise (INMED ASE) is a program of INMED Partnerships for Children, an international humanitarian development organization that has improved the lives of vulnerable populations in more than 100 countries since 1986. INMED’s affiliates in Latin America, the Caribbean, South Africa and the U.S. all have long and successful track records of leveraging the power of partnerships and pioneering solutions to build pathways for vulnerable children, families and communities to achieve well-being and self-reliance.
The INMED ASE is INMED’s latest revolutionary approach to mitigating the interrelated issues of poverty, food insecurity, malnutrition, economic development and exclusion, by equipping subsistence producers and their communities to adapt to climate change while conserving natural resources and increasing access to economic and technical assets. Using aquaponics farming as the springboard, the INMED ASE builds a network of agro-businesses that receive training and support from a hub incubator with the aim of becoming satellite ASE hub farms to bolster economic development regionally and nationally. The INMED ASE national teams also collaborate and share best practices to scale the model internationally.
