After almost a year of implementation, MADRE releases its Best Practice Catalogue on urban and peri-urban agriculture. Developed by ANIMA Investment Network, it highlights the best practices identified in the 6 metropolises associated with the project, in terms of farmers' innovation, social innovation, consumer innovation, academic research, territorial innovation and transnational innovation.
The aims of the Catalogue are manifold:
- mapping the key stakeholders of urban and peri-urban agriculture and connecting them at the Mediterranean level;
- identifying the good practices developed and consolidating the knowledge gained;
- evaluating the economic, environmental and social performance factors of urban and peri-urban agriculture;
- promoting the most relevant and innovative practices and facilitating their replication and adaptation in other territories.
