Robineau O., Viteri M.L., Cittadini R., Dugué P., Soulard C.T.. 2016. Urban Agriculture Magazine (31) : p. 13-15.

Feeding cities is assuming ever more importance on the political agenda. But beyond the required willingness of political actors to develop urban food strategies, initiatives driven by local actors also play a central role in the long-term construction and consolidation of these strategies. Through describing experiences in West Africa and South America, we emphasise that taking into account informal relationships in designing public policies can improve food production and distribution in urban areas.
