The number of people living in cities will more than double in by the year 2033. At the same time it is clear that past incentives to keep the developing World's people in rural areas have not worked. This text presents a picture of the urban agriculture of Asia, Africa and Latin America, and aims to foster a climate in which practitioners are enabled to fulfil the industry's potential for improving public well-being and the quality of urban life. The historical prejudices against urban farming are outlined, and actual problems involved with urban agriculture are identified, as are the many benefits of well-planned and well-executed urban agriculture.
