Title: Growing Better Cities: Urban Agriculture for Sustainable Development
Url: http://www.idrc.ca/EN/Resources/Publications/Pages/IDRCBookDetails.as...
Creator: Mougeot, Luc J. A.
Publisher: International Development Research Centre (Canada)
Description: Throughout the history of cities, many folks grew some of their own food in local garden plots, and in some cases, they were able to supplement their household income with the fruits (and vegetables) of their labor. As the United Nations has recently predicted that 60% of the world's total population will live in cities by the year 2030, more and more concerned parties have become interested in encouraging urban agriculture, particularly in the developing world. In this work, Luc J.A. Mougeot of the International Development Centre (based in Canada), reviews the work of his own institution in this area of human endeavor, and also offers some concrete recommendations for policymakers hoping to maximize the potential of urban agriculture. The report is divided into five chapters, and contains some helpful sections which include, Managing municipal wastewater, Easing ecological problems, and Growing gardens with greywater.
