Interviews and further Insights into UFiSAMo

The UFiSAMo-Project (Urban Agriculture for Food Security and Income Generation in South Africa and Mozambique) analyses urban agricultural production systems and how to best improve them.
For urban communities in Maputo/ Mozambique and Cape Town/ South Africa UFISAMO aims to:

  • improve food security and safety
  • improve income generation
  • assess benefits and risks in integrated urban livestock and crop farming
  • combine research and practical applications of urban farming from grassroots to upper policy levels
In order to provide more insight into the project, a new 20 minute video has been produced by Dariusch Tabib-Elahi, which puts small scale local farmers into the centre of attention.
