European Forum on Urban Agriculture
Goal: By 2050, the majority (67 %) of people will be living in urban areas. This is one reason why urban agriculture (UA) is becoming a subject of growing interest. Apart from providing fresh food to urban areas, indoor farms and rooftop gardens will also be a source of environmental, social and health-related benefits as well as economic development opportunities. UA also addresses climate change and allows food to be grown closer to home. The EU-funded EFUA project will investigate the role of UA as an innovator in the agricultural and food sector and the urban economy. It will promote UA by engaging stakeholders, co-building knowledge and communicating it to the public. Special networking methods will be used to access cutting-edge knowledge.
