Urban Agriculture Magazine no. 29 – special issue on City region food systems

Today the 29th issue of the Urban Agriculture Magazine has been published online, featuring a special issue on city region food systems.

UAM29 coverThis issue addresses the growing attention for policy and practice approaches that focus on food issues in urban areas from a city-regional perspective, taking into account possible contributions from urban and periurban agriculture and a strengthening of urban-rural relations. It is largely based on our EC funded research programme SUPURBFOOD but also features articles from other projects and initiatives.

The Magazine will be officially launched in hardcopy at the ICLEI Resilient Cities Congress on 10 June 2015 in Bonn, Germany, during which event three Urban Food Forum sessions are held in collaboration with the SUPURBFOOD consortium together with policymakers and SMEs from the SUPURBFOOD city regions.
