Course Description

This course describes the dimensions (functions, roles, benefits, potential risks) of urban agriculture and how these complement, supplement, compete with, substitute for, or undermine those provided by other land uses, sectoral activities and actors. The main dimensions covered are: health and food security, socio-cultural dimensions, economic dimensions, and environmental dimensions. Two well-documented case studies will be used throughout the course to highlight each dimension separately, before bringing them all together.

Notes

This course has been developed in partnership with the RUAF Foundation in the Netherlands.
