dc.description.abstract The world population is urbanising rapidly, with urban poverty growing apace, particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean. Food and fuel already absorb a large share of urban poor households incomes, and household food insecurity has been worsening in recent years in the Region. Several factors affect the quality, availability and affordability of food and micronutrient provisioning to city populations. The urban poor have diversified their food procurement strategies and urban food production has resurged since the 1970s, with several community and municipal initiatives reported recently throughout the Region. Several international organisations have come together in the mid 1990s to support a more coherent and effective inclusion of such initiatives into local development strategies. The projects objectives is to foster Urban Agriculture in Latin America and the Caribbean, by strengthening Aguila Network and their members, by support actions of data exchange and experiences, Aguila Network's institutional strengthening and impact on the decision making processes with the authorities and local governments outlining urban policies and lineaments, so Urban Agriculture fostering is included in them. en
