Ruaf GP


The RUAF GP is a consortium of strategically-selected expert institutions with a recognised track record in urban and peri-urban agriculture and urban food systems. RUAF GP brings together cities, research institutes and civil society organisations (CSOs), that combine technical and policy expertise with scientific research and practical knowledge.

The RUAF GP currently has 9 partners: three research institutes, four civil society organisations (CSOs) and two cities.

The RUAF GP operates a ‘think tank’ for introducing new ideas and provoking debate on critical and emerging issues, with all partners bringing knowledge, perspectives and technical knowledge to the table. It enables creative problem solving.

RUAF partners can host major projects – that is, activities and services carried out by one or more RUAF partners, and related to the RUAF Partnership’s expertise and work plan and using the logo of RUAF in project related materials and events.
