About Book

Book Description
* First ever collection of findings about the proliferation of urban agriculture written by the world’s leading authority in the field
* Urban agriculture feeds hundreds of millions of people worldwide and is a rapidly emerging issue in urban and development studies
* Accessible, jargon-free style, making it ideal for policymakers, city managers, students, and general readers

Urban agriculture is an increasingly popular practice in cities worldwide, and a sustainable future for it is critical, especially for the urban poor of the developing world. This book presents the first findings of original field research projects funded by IDRC’s AGROPOLIS International Graduate Research Awards on Urban Agriculture. Countries studied include Cuba, Argentina, Botswana, France, the UK, Zimbabwe, Ivory Coast, Togo, and Tunisia. Together, these studies examine concrete strategies to better integrate "city farming" into the urban landscape.
