Assessing the socio-economic impact

Moustier P.. 2001. Urban Agriculture Magazine : p. 47-48.

This paper provides practical indicators and field methods for assessing the impact of urban and peri-urban agriculture in social and economic terms (employment, income, added value, and food supply). In a context of growing advocacy for policy support in favour of urban agriculture, and while public resources are shrinking, it is necessary that researchers provide rigorous assessments of the contribution of agriculture to the city's policy objectives (Ellis and Sumberg 1998).
