Special Issue of Sustainability now published:
“A Systemic Perspective on Urban Food Supply: Assessing Different Types of Urban Agriculture“
edited by Martina Artmann, Kathrin Specht, Jan Vávra and Marius Rommel,
This Special Issue was initiated in the course of various sessions organized by the guest editors in the course of the ESP Europe conference 2018 in San Sebastian (Spain), the IALE World Congress 2019 in Milan (Italy) and the Dresden Nexus Conference 2020 (Germany).
In total, the Special Issue comprises 15 articles including one conceptual paper and 14 case studies from different countries: Australia, Benin, China, Czechia, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the UK. The papers cover a broad range of impact and implementation dimensions, assessment methods and geographical backgrounds that can support future studies to develop a systemic perspective on urban food production.
The guest editors want to express our sincere gratitude to all authors and reviewers who have contributed their time and effort to make this Special Issue possible and we are looking forward to further exchange and research on this topic, such as in the course of the SURE Working Group on urban agriculture.
