Urban Agriculture in Casablanca, Morocco
• Rapid urban growth is reducing and fragmenting agricultural land within the city region
• Conventional planning tends to neglect agriculture and open space as valuable resources and parts of the regional land use structure

• Low awareness of the potential of urban agriculture for a productive green infra- structure and sustainable food supply
