    Urban and peri-urban agriculture Urban and peri-urban agriculture Presentation Transcript

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