The International Fund for Agricultural Development has produced a report on Smallholders, food security, and the environment [pdf] that speaks to the importance of well-functioning ecosystems to a neglected but significant portion of the global agricultural community.

The latest news from RUAF [Resource Centres on Urban Agriculture and Food Security] includes two updates on the “Safe and Productive Use of Wastes for Urban Agriculture”, and news of a new strategic partnership with ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (www.iclei.org) to collaborate on resilient urban food and city-regional systems.
