City Region Food Systems

urban AgA new issue of Urban Agriculture Magazine no. 29, which is a special issue on city region food systems.

This issue addresses the growing attention for policy and practice approaches that focus on food issues in urban areas from a city-regional perspective, taking into account possible contributions from urban and periurban agriculture and a strengthening of urban-rural relations.

To quote from the magazine:

Food is increasingly an urban issue. This is gaining broad recognition among local, regional and nationalgovernments, international and support organisations, civil society, the private sector, consumers and academia. Evidence for this recognition can be found in cities in all regions of the world, where policy and programme initiatives are being undertaken in various fields related to urban and periurban food production and supply – as many of the articles in this Magazine illustrate.
