Urban Agriculture (UA) is a dynamic concept that involves input supply, production, agro-processing and marketing. This course will discuss and illustrate different UA types and activities in terms of their resource-use, location, policy and institutional frameworks, functions, technical aspects, development challenges and potential innovations. It will also look into processes of decision making and location of UA and discuss a methodology for farmer-centred learning, research and extension for UA.
Note: This course has been developed in partnership with ETC-Urban Agriculture (ETC-UA) <http://www.etc-urbanagriculture.org/> and the International Network of Resource Centres on Urban Agriculture and Food Security (RUAF) <http://www.ruaf.org/> , with technical support provided by The Chang School.
This course is part of a portfolio of four distance education courses on urban agriculture, including the following: CVFN 410, CVFN 411, CVFN 412, and CVFN 413.
