Cities, Food and Agriculture: Challenges and the way forward

by Marielle Dubbeling and Henk de Zeeuw, RUAF Foundation, 2009

The RUAF Working paper # 3 discusses a number of critical challenges cities in developing countries are facing nowadays and subsequently analyses in what ways (intra- and peri-) urban agriculture can contribute to  addressing each of these challenges. The paper was prepared by RUAF on request of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in preparation of the World Food Summit on Food Security (Rome, 2009).
