African Urban Harvest Over the past two decades, how has urban agriculture changed in sub-Saharan African? Is city farming now better integrated into environmental management and city governance? And, looking ahead, how might urban agriculture address the needs of the low-income households and modernizing cities of Africa? In this book, leading specialists in the fi eld of urban agriculture and urban environment present a unique collection of case studies that examines the growing role of local food production in urban livelihoods in sub- Saharan Africa. Amongst many issues, the authors probe the changing role of urban agriculture, the risks and benefi ts of crops-livestock systems, and the opportunities for making locally produced food more easily available and more profi table. Concluding chapters refl ect on the policy and governance implications of greater integration of urban natural resources and the built environment, an expanded role for urban agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa and crucial role of women in urban food systems. African Urban Harvest will be of interest to decision-makers, development professionals, researchers, academics, and studies and educators in urban planning, development studies, African studies, and environmental studies.
