A New Typology of Urban AgricultureEFUA, the European Forum on Urban Agriculture, is launching a new typology of urban agriculture. Whilst previous typologies have emphasised the distinction between the two broad headings of urban gardening and urban farming, the increasingly complex nature of the discipline has meant that these typologies no longer reflect the full diversity of Urban Agriculture.
What is the EFUA H2020 Project?
The European Forum on Urban Agriculture (EFUA) is a 4 year project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
The project is running from 2020-2024. +
EFUA’s objectives are to unlock Urban Agriculture’s potential through achieving better networking, better knowledge, better deployment and better policies in the field.
Through establishing an Urban Agriculture (UA) Forum, it aims to develop new levels of stakeholder engagement to inform decision making and to mainstream Urban Agriculture into European, regional and local policy.
EFUA’s work is facilitated through the UA platform. This provides resources for engaging stakeholders and for the co-building of knowledge, communication and dissemination.
The benefits of Urban Agriculture and recommendations for action are clarified to European policy makers to help support mainstream EU agendas and programs.
EFUA is mapping case studies in urban farming all over Europe. You can notify to us your experience by writing us and we will add it to the map.
The map will be a useful tool to discover innovative experience that keep on growing everywhere in Europe and maybe next to your house.
