This roadmap identifies policy recommendations for a desirable future for urban agriculture in 2050
based on policy reviews, interviews and workshops. In particular, this work assesses how and to
what degree policy can be developed to create synergies between urban agriculture and cities’ food,
energy and water nexus. This work is based on the existing policies in five city regions in France,
Germany, Poland, the United Kingdom and the United States. This report is designed for use by
policy makers, public authorities and other stakeholders who want to support a shift towards an
urban agriculture in which the nexus between food production, water and energy use, and social
benefits is optimised.
To construct scenarios for analysis, seven key factors were identified (from 24 original drivers
emerging from analysis) and intersected with three potential trends (positive, negative and a
continuation of the status quo). Recommendations in this roadmap are based on the most positive
outcomes for urban agriculture, cities, and citizens.
