ABOUT THE BOOK

The book discusses the utility of urban agriculture (UA) to solve various urban problems in India. Good practice urban agriculture is growing vegetables, fruits, fish and livestock in a regulated manner on any available urban land. In India shortages of per capita land availability and fresh water supply are realities. In urban agriculture, both sewage water and organic waste can be gainfully utilized in producing fish and vegetable, thus transforming urban waste into resource. UA can reduce urban hunger, pollution and food price. Well planned, UA can help in reducing food mile (distance from farm to plate) and carbon foot print thus saving fuel.

Population growth and rapid urbanization are encroaching on agricultural land resulting in displaced agricultural labourers migrating to cities and settling in urban sprawls devoid of water, sanitation and basic amenities. This creates stress on city infrastructure and adversely impacts health, hygiene and urban food availability. The migrants, skilled in the indigenous techniques of farming can be gainfully utilized in regulated UA, which not only compensate for the urban food shortage and benefit the migrants with a livelihood but also provide the congested city with lungs. The book, highlights experiences from India and the world.
