Produktdetails

'The wise use of urban agriculture can significantly contribute to urban poverty reduction, as well as enhancing the resilience of cities in a changing climate. Countries as diverse as Ghana, Peru, Sri Lanka and Yemen are harnessing the potential of urban agriculture. This excellent publication offers a practical methodology to promote sound urban agriculture policies and practices.' Rafael Tuts, Chief, Urban Environmental Planning Branch, UN-HABITAT, Nairobi. 'This is a must-read for researchers and policy makers interested in food security, food policy and urban planning. RUAF has been leading an international network of researchers into exploring the role of urban agriculture in dealing with challenges of urban poverty and economic development, social inclusion of marginalized groups, waste management, food insecurity and malnutrition and potential impacts of climate change in the global South. A very accessible guide with case studies from Asia, Africa and South America, Cities, Poverty and Food is a do-it-yourself guide for those who are seeking ways to break away from conventional policy solutions to food insecurity. In a world where most of the people are living in urban areas, Cities, Poverty and Food is offering fresh new insights on not only feeding urban populations but, by seeking multi-stakeholder formulations, also democratizing the food system.' Mustafa Koc, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology and Centre for Studies in Food Security, Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada.
