Multi-Stakeholder Policy Formulation and Action Planning on Urban Agriculture

Marielle Dubbeling, Henk de Zeeuw, René van Veenhuizen

Multi-stakeholder processes are increasingly considered to be an important element of policy design, action planning and implementation. By involving multiple stakeholders in decision-making, it is much more likely that
more inclusive policies and programmes will be developed that also achieve a greater degree of success in implementation. Urban agriculture touches on a large number of urban management areas and involves a large diversity of systems and related actors. Only by coordinating policy and planning on urban agriculture between these different actors and sectors can these endeavours be successful.
