This collection reviews key recent research on developing urban and peri-urban agriculture.

Chapters first discuss ways of building urban agriculture, from planning and business models to building social networks to support local supply chains. Other chapters survey developments in key technologies for urban agriculture, including rooftop systems and vertical farming. The book also assesses challenges and improvements in irrigation, waste management, composting/soil nutrition and pest management. The final group of chapters provides a series of case studies on urban farming of particular commodities, including horticultural produce, livestock and forestry.

Unveröffentlichter Kommentar
"Prof Wiskerke has drawn together a group of leading authors on urban agriculture in the global north to contribute to what promises to be a leading text on sustainable urban agriculture. Its balance of chapters on governance, technical aspects and case studies will provide a comprehensive source for researchers and policy makers."
Dr Jane Battersby, University of Cape Town, South Africa
