Cities Feeding People: an examination of Urban Agriculture in East Africa

For the urban poor of the South, food is becoming a prohibitively expensive commodity. By the late 1980s, cities of the developing world had to import half their food supply. This book examines urban agriculture in East Africa and argues that it is a safe, clean, secure and sustainable method to feed the world’s struggling urban residents, and reduce their dependence on imports.

Chapter 5 specifically talks to community-led cooperatives in Ethiopia
