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) and the Resource Centre on Urban Agriculture and Food Security (RUAF), 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. These courses comprise a course series; students who complete all four courses will receive a Professional Development Award. For more information, visit Course Series in Urban Agriculture.
