Urban Agriculture Magazine no. 34 – Measuring Impact

In the past year we have seen the development of various assessment and indicator frameworks to help cities to map the current status and performance of their city region food system. With this urban agriculture magazine we explore how such assessment frameworks have concretely supported planning and policy, and have enabled cities to measure and monitor changes in relation to food strategies and action plans.
