The world-wide migration of rural inhabitants to cities is particularly prominent in Africa and Asia. Rural dwellers moving to cities often bring agricultural practices with them for food security and livelihood reasons. However, there are also downsides related to urban and periurban farming like threats to the public health from zoonotic diseases, sanitary issues and local environmental degradation. This workshop aims to identify dilemmas and gaps in knowledge related to this kind of agricultural practise. Researchers, students, practioners, policymaker and other stakeholders are warmly welcome.
