Where Do U.S. Cities Stand On Urban Agriculture?

Wednesday, January 19th, 2022

Local urban agriculture policies have gained momentum since the turn of the XXIth century. However, it is difficult to get the bigger picture of where we stand after 20 years of policy development. For this reason, researchers from Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future reviewed past and current urban agriculture policies in 40 of the most populated U.S. cities. For this review, they examined regulations as well as plans, guidance, programmes, and policy recommendations. They show that urban agriculture policies have greatly developed but that there are still many opportunities for them to explore new themes, open up to new stakeholders, and be more accessible to citizens.
