Tra espansione urbana e sicurezza alimentare: il caso della Green Belt bonearense

Thomas Gilardi


The urban expansion advances on one of the most fertile plains of Latin America, modifying its territorial characteristics. The processes considered in the Bonearense region highlight how, although urban and peri-urban agriculture contributes to the food sustenance of the AMBA population, it has not yet been sufficiently recognized as a necessary practice for the recovery and conservation of green areas, of organic waste recycling and wastewater. However, it also shows that regional authorities have begun to recognize the role of urban agriculture in fighting urban poverty. Local economic development struggles to mediate between food security and the provision of recreational services to citizenship, in a territory that is highly subject to two pressures produced by the expansion of two opposing phenomena: on the one hand the urban real estate market and on the other, agro-industrial production.
