Who are we?
Universities in Maputo, Mozambique, Cape Town, South Africa, and Berlin, Germany as well as NGOs and government structures active in urban agriculture cooperate closely for the project UFISAMO.
An international, interdisciplinary team unites practitioners and scientists embedded in the institutional landscape of the partner countries.
Since March 2016, the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) supports a project on urban agriculture in Cape Town and Maputo.
The objectives of the project are to contribute to improved food and nutrition security of segments of the disfavored urban population and to increased income generation by optimizing production, processing and marketing of agricultural and livestock products.
Applicability of research results is in the foreground: all components of the project are expected to generate information and analysis that can be transferred into “good practices”, extension material, demo-plots, capacity development and vocational training of farmers etc. Details of the project concept can be found in the inception report which is available on request
