Urban agriculture information resources and network

As urbanisation spreads and cities attract and provide homes to large numbers of poor people, there is increasing interest in urban agriculture - the growing of plants and the raising of animals within and around cities. The renewed web site of the RUAF Foundation is a starting point into this specialised world.

The new site gives access to the activities of six regional Resource Centres on Urban Agriculture and Food Security (RUAF’s) - in China, Ghana, India, Peru, Senegal, and Zimbabwe. It also brings together information on events, online publications, a searchable annotated bibliography and bibliographic database, the online Urban Agriculture Magazine (in six languages) and a contacts and experts database.
