The MADRE project released its Best Practice Catalogue on urban and peri-urban agriculture. Developed by ANIMA Investment Network, it highlights the best practices identified in terms of farmers' innovation, social innovation, consumer innovation, academic research, territorial innovation and transnational innovation including the UrbanGreenTrain project in which RUAF was a partner.
The aims of the catalogue are manifold:
- mapping the key stakeholders of urban and peri-urban agriculture and connecting them at the Mediterranean level;
- identifying the good practices developed and consolidating the knowledge gained;
- evaluating the economic, environmental and social performance factors of urban and peri-urban agriculture;
- promoting the most relevant and innovative practices and facilitating their replication and adaptation in other territories.
