Latest Brussels Briefing n. 50: “Growing food in the cities: Successes and new opportunities”

The latest Brussels Development Briefing no. 50 on “Growing food in the cities: Successes and new opportunities” took place on 10 April 2018 from 09h00 to 13h00, ACP Secretariat, Brussels 451 Avenue Georges Henri, 1200 Brussels. This Briefing was organised by the ACP-EU Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA), in collaboration with the European Commission / DEVCO, the ACP Secretariat, and CONCORD . This Briefing discussed the development of urban agriculture in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, looking at successful urban agribusinesses and the innovations, partnerships and policy developments that are creating new opportunities in this field. In particular, the Briefing featured an exchange of views and experiences around agriculture in urban and peri-urban areas, and the main drivers for its growth and uptake by youth and women. It shared best practices and achievements across ACP countries from the private and public sectors, and discussed the factors for success, their replicability, and potential for upscaling. The intended outcome of the Briefing was to contribute towards successful strategies and partnerships that will promote sustainable, resilient and inclusive urban food production, and identify promising opportunities across the value chains with insight from policymakers, research networks, private sector representatives, experts, civil society groups, development practitioners, and international organisations.
