FAO – IDRC – project on urban and peri-urban agriculture


This site was set up in order to allow everyone who is working in the FAO – IDRC – project “Urban and Peri-urban Agriculture: Towards a better understanding of low-income producers’ organizations” to get informed about the state of affairs, exchange information and discuss, and for everybody else who is interested, to learn what the project is about.  

The project, which started in 2005, is funded by IDRC and operated by FAO. The project’s objective is to generate knowledge for a better understanding of types and performance of existing formal and informal urban and peri-urban producers’ organisations in cities of developing countries. its final goal is to identify actions required for their strengthening in terms of effectiveness and sustainability.
