Published by cip-library
Urban agriculture is once more being recognized as an important response that millions of families use to obtain food. The internationally recognized Right to Food (FAO 2005) implies that urban food production and distribution should be encouraged not only to alleviate crisis situations such as that now prevailing, but also as part of a longerterm strategy for hunger and poverty alleviation. However, fostering such self-reliance and promoting the safe production and distribution of urban as well as rural food present enormous challenges for urban stakeholders and municipal policymakers (FAO 2000). This book attempts to unpack the urban agriculture component of these challenges, drawing on experiences in one city of sub-Saharan Africa
