Together with UNEP and the WMO, START undertook an assessment of urban and peri-urban agriculture in nine cities across West Africa, East Africa and South Asia, involving over 70 researchers and 450 city stakeholders.

The assessments, which occurred between 2011 and 2013, highlighted the challenges agriculture faces in rapidly growing cities, and provided data and resources to support city-level decision making.

Read how the findings of the assessment led by Prof. Ibidun Adelekan in Nigeria have given city officials a better understanding of how to work with women farmers involved in Ibadans vibrant urban agriculture sector.
