Towards a sustainable food supply for the city of Brussels : Opportunities in and around the urban context
How self-sufficient is the city of Brussels today in terms of its food supply? To what extent can urban agriculture be developed to feed the population? What are the possible pathways for feeding Brussels in a more sustainable way?
This study looked at the potential for an organic supply of canteens in Wallonia (Southern Belgium). It compared the demand from Walloon canteens with the production potential of organic farming in the Region. It includes prospective projections towards 2021 and 2025.
How has Walloon agriculture evolved over the past ten years? What is the share of organic agriculture? How to measure the use of pesticides? What scenarios can we envisage for the future? This booklet provides data and analysis to foster debate on those questions.
