Urban Agriculture Workshop in Addis Ababa

Urban agriculture is an important activity in Addis Ababa and is predicted to become more integral to livelihood, food security and the environment as the city undergoes rapid urbanization. An Urban Agriculture Stakeholder Network Creation workshop was sponsored by the FAO (food and agriculture organization of the UN) in February 2012 to bring 60 people from government bodies, NGOs, international organizations and citizens together to share best practices and develop a network to forge the way forward in order to support, strengthen and promote urban agriculture in Addis Ababa.
