Urban and peri-urban agriculture

  1. 1. Urban and peri-urban agricultureUPA<br />
  2. 2. Proposed research theme 1<br />To what extent is UPA a response to shocks that produce food insecurity in urban areas?<br />What is UPA’s extent and does it change with shocks?<br />Who does it and where is it done?<br />What are the enabling conditions for it?<br />How effective is it relative to other strategies?<br />What is its potential for enhancement?<br />What are its limitations?<br />
  3. 3. Proposed research theme 2<br />How can UPA systems be made more resilient?<br />Abiotic and biotic stresses to production systems<br />Stresses to supply chain (transportation infrastructure, storage, markets)<br />Novel opportunities for testing adaptation in UPA <br />Knowledge exchange<br />Networks and social capital<br />
  4. 4. Proposed research theme 3<br />How might environmental services and impacts of UPA change in a warmer world?<br />Water, land and food<br />Source of nutrient rich foods (+)<br />Use of waste as input (+)<br />Dampening of storm impacts (+)<br />Increased use of pesticides (-)<br />Contamination of food, soil and water (-)<br />Urban heat island effect<br />
  5. 5. Possible locations for research<br />Criteria<br />Comparison of large coastal (near coastal) city and medium size inland city<br />Proposed<br />Ghana: Accra and Tamale<br />Tanzania: Dar es Salaam and Dodoma<br />Bangladesh: Dhaka and Rajshahi<br />
  6. 6. What are gender dimensions of UPA to consider?<br />Gender X Culture X Activity<br />Intra- and inter-household food security in urban households<br />Access to information, inputs, credit<br />Remittances<br />
  7. 7. What are relevant institutional, policy, and governance issues? <br />Policy environment <br />recognition of UPA beginning<br />policies ignore or are detrimental to UPA<br />Informal economy and informal services<br />Access to land, water and other assets<br />Food quality and safety<br />
  8. 8. Going forward<br />Link with experts<br />African Food Security Urban Network<br />Resource Centres on Urban Agriculture<br />FAO’s urban agriculture programme<br />UN Habitat<br />CGIAR UrbanHarvestProgramme<br />IHDP<br />START’s nascent network<br />
