The Veolia Institute has just published a new issue of Facts Reports on the theme of urban agriculture: “Urban agriculture: another way to feed cities”. To open up discussions on the topic a conference was organized on 1 October 2019 at Veolia headquarters in Aubervilliers, with exchanges between researchers, innovative companies, architects and experts who analysed the current growth of urban agriculture in developed and emerging countries. By relocating part of their food system, cities are reinventing their links with agriculture.
The report includes the following RUAF contributions:
- How the municipality of Quito supports vulnerable city dwellers through urban agriculture by
Alexandra Rodríguez Dueñas (AGRUPAR, City of Quito)
- Urban agriculture as a climate change and disaster risk reduction strategy by Marielle Dubbeling, René van Veenhuizen and Jess Halliday (RUAF Foundation)
