About Urban Agriculture 2020

*Status Update* Please note that following the recent events on the Coronavirus pandemic and with the main objective to preserve the well being of our delegates, WIT has decided to postpone the conference. It was due to be held 12-14 May and will now be held 29 September-1 October 2020. *** The aim of the meeting is to review and discuss ways in which urban agriculture can contribute to achieve sustainable cities. As urban populations continue to increase it is essential to consider ways of reducing their impact in terms of use of natural resources, waste production and climate change.
