Contribution of periurban farming systems to urban food security

Picture copyright Filippini et al.

Periurban farming is central to the debate on food security in developed countries. Scientists Filippini et al. developed a methodology to characterize food quantity, quality and crop production intensity in periurban farms. They reckon that food allocation must be supported in local markets through specific agri-urban projects. Such novel analyses are essential to develop more efficient food policies with benefits for the urban food security.

  1. For sure cities have to think about a new sustainable way of town planning development. Water, food and energy management issues must be at the prior top of requirements!
