EFUA Survey on the benefits of urban agriculture

We are conducting a survey into the benefits of urban agriculture. We would like to ask you for your help by filling the following form. We would also appreciate if you could forward the survey within your urban agriculture network.

Here is the link to the survey:

This survey aims to gain a more in-depth understanding of the benefits of Urban Agriculture (UA), especially in the European context. The data collected will be analysed to identify similarities and differences between UA initiatives. Your contribution to answering these questions will help to define the benefits of UA, also at city-region level, its possible disservices or unwanted effects, the monitoring and assessment of these benefits, as well as how UA can  contribute to and link with other urban oriented concepts such as urban metabolism, urban-rural linkages and urban food systems.

Respondents can be stakeholders who have an overview of UA, at global and city-region level, such as city officials, urban planners, experts and researchers, opinion makers, policy and decision makers and UA managers.

The survey is divided into two sections: general information and UA benefits. It will take about 15 minutes to complete this survey.

We set the deadline of this survey by September 30th.

If you have further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us through:

Thank you for your help!
