    Abstract

    The global demand for food production will increase becau se of rapid population growth and increased competition for land and water. The ever increasing demand for water in agriculture is one of the key limiting factors for food production. Thus, producing more food for each drop of water is vital for addressing water scarcity a n d food insecurity. This chapter provides an overview of integrated aquaculture-agriculture (IAA) that has great potential to increase food productivity and reduce risks associated with water scarcity. IAA also provides a wide range of social, economic and environmental benefits. It is therefore, recognised that IAA produces 'more cropper drop'.
