Mapping urban agriculture in Amsterdam

Action leader(s)

Amsterdam City Council


In January 2014 the City Council launched a food policy “Voedsel en Amsterdam” (Food and Amsterdam), in which the policy agenda was set by the themes education, sustainability, connecting initiatives and debate. In 2015 food and urban agriculture became part of the provisional Green Agenda, defined by the new alderman on Sustainability and Public Space. To visualize the various urban agriculture initiatives in the city of Amsterdam an interactive map was made in 2014 and actualized since.
