  • 35. international rural peri-urban intera-urban Food supply from intra- and peri-urban areas for redundant and thus resilient food supply
  • 36. Agricultural lands with prime soil found in and around the urban core Soil quality top mid low railroad station urban land use
  • 37. Percentage of agricultural lands with prime soil and that of built up lands agricultural land with prime soil built up land R2 = 0.77 Distance from the urban core (railroad station)
  • 38. Multi-functionality / ecosystem services of agricultural lands in peri-urban areas Microclimate control (Reduction of summer heat) Scenery conservation Water retention Bio-diversity conservation
  • 39. Heat island
  • 40. Farmland patches as “cool spots” in a residential neighborhood
  • 41. 2C Coverage ratio of paddy fields per unit (%) Relationship between the coverage ratio of paddy fields and the temperature differences between paddy fields and the urban core

  • 48. Agriculture experience gardens Nerima, Tokyo Instructed by local farmers
  • 49. Local “urban” residents working, not volunteering, as semi-professional farmers on suburban farmlands
  • 50. Size of farmland Group A Group B, Group C Group E large small Community garden Group D Group F Professional farming Number of grown vegetables Group F Group D Group C large small Professional farming Group A Group E Group B Community garden
  • 51. Urban hobby farmers kg/m /year 9.1 2 kg/m /year 6.2 Professional farmers 2
  • 52. Peri-urban landscapes with a smallscaled mixture of fragmented urban and agricultural land uses May not be “beautiful” but “functional” to create sustainable and resilient cities in East Asia Thank you!
