Synopsis

As people increasingly migrate to urban settings and more than half of the world's population now lives in cities, it is vital to plan and provide for sustainable and resilient food systems which reflect this challenge. This volume presents experience and evidence-based "state of the art" chapters on the key dimensions of urban food challenges and types of intra- and peri-urban agriculture. The book provides urban planners, local policy makers and urban development practitioners with an overview of crucial aspects of urban food systems based on an up to date review of research results and practical experiences in both developed and developing countries. By doing so, the international team of authors provides a balanced textbook for students of the growing number of courses on sustainable agriculture, food and urban studies, as well as a solid basis for well-informed policy making, planning and implementation regarding the development of sustainable, resilient and just urban food systems.

Henk de Zeeuw is Senior Advisor at the RUAF Foundation, based in Leusden, the Netherlands. The RUAF Foundation (Resource Centres on Urban Agriculture and Food Security) is a global network and a leading centre of expertise in the field of (intra- and peri-) Urban Agriculture and City Region Food Strategies.
