urban farming

But in the US, it was purposely planned out of our cities, even as they grew bigger and, as a result, hungrier. Now many of our cities contain massive sprawl, which have created new opportunities in the form of abandoned lots, a consequence of the economic downturn. But we also have a mobilized movement of individuals interested in feeding people, especially those without access to healthy fruits and vegetables (many of whom reside in cities). These anticipated problems now have a face -- Bad Seed Farm is at the center of a neighborhood zoning debate in Kansas City, Missouri.

Kelly took part in a meeting with some of the legislators and the Bad Seed farmers this morning. "I think this is a sign of the maturing of the urban agriculture movement," Kelly said.

Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds. Dear Reader: Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds is the th installment in the National IntelligenceCouncil’s series aimed at providing a ramework or thinking about the uture.

Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds

As with previouseditions, we hope that this report will stimulate strategic thinking by identiying critical trends andpotential discontinuities. We distinguish between megatrends, those actors that will likely occur under any scenario, and game-changers, critical variables whose trajectories are ar less certain.Finally, as our appreciation o the diversity and complexity o various actors has grown, we haveincreased our attention to scenarios or alternative worlds we might ace.

We are at a critical juncture in human history, which could lead to widely contrasting utures.It is our contention that the uture is not set in stone, but is malleable, the result o an interplay among megatrends, game-changers and, above all, human agency.

Produire plus et mieux : le casse-tête (chinois ?) des productions animales (Chronique originale) Trade and Environment Review 2013. Developing and developed countries alike need a paradigm shift in agricultural development: from a "green revolution" to a "truly ecological intensification" approach.

Trade and Environment Review 2013

This implies a rapid and significant shift from conventional, monoculture-based and high external-input-dependent industrial production towards mosaics of sustainable, regenerative production systems that also considerably improve the productivity of small-scale farmers. We need to see a move from a linear to a holistic approach in agricultural management, which recognizes that a farmer is not only a producer of agricultural goods, but also a manager of an agro-ecological system that provides quite a number of public goods and services (e.g. water, soil, landscape, energy, biodiversity, and recreation) UNCTAD's Trade and Environment Review 2013 (TER13) contends.

TER13 highlights that the required transformation is much more profound than simply tweaking the existing industrial agricultural system.
