Urban Agriculture Socio-Environmental Synthesis: An Integration of the Ecosystem Services and Livelihoods Approaches to Evaluate the Multifaceted Role of Urban Agriculture in Contemporary Latin America

This proposal suggests a simple, yet innovative, approach: the integration of the ecosystem services framework, which assesses the material and non-material benefits people obtain from nature like food, water and the potential for community engagement, and the livelihoods framework, which can evaluate the relationship between UA and humanistic and societal advancements like poverty alleviation and a community connection to agrarian heritage
