      Cultivating Montreal: A Brief History of Citizens and Institutions Integrating Urban Agriculture in the City
      Core Ideas

      Vulnerability Analysis of Urban Agriculture Projects: A Case Study of Community and Entrepreneurial Gardens in the Netherlands and Switzerland
      Core Ideas
      • We identified the main challenges and perturbations faced when an urban agriculture (UA) project is established.
      • The analysis was based on a vulnerability and resilience framework.
      • Perturbations stemming from biophysical factors did not have a decisive impact on the continuity of UA projects.
      • Perturbations related to socio-institutional factors were the most threatening to the continuity of UA projects.
      • Our case studies give an insight in potential perturbations and responses by UA projects in the Netherlands and Switzerland.
