A podcast by Steve Wells

The future of sustainable urban agriculture

A recent podcast by Steve Wells highlighted the future of sustainable urban agriculture. Joining him during the podcast is Diana Davidson, Founder and Managing Director of Vertemis. 

Agriculture is responsible for 9% of all Greenhouse Gas emissions in the UK, according to Farm Carbon Toolkit. These emissions are the result of livestock rearing and natural processes, crop fertilization using chemical fertilizers, materials used to build and maintain farms, energy use of farm buildings and vehicles, transport and distribution during and after growing, soil-based emissions from disturbing soils, and waste produced as a result of farming processes.

So how might the urbanization of agriculture change this landscape in the future? To talk about these issues within the broad theme of ‘The Future of Sustainable Urban Agriculture', Steve is joined by Diana Davidson, who advises organizations in developing sustainable performance strategies for the zero carbon emissions economy, to explore:

  • What are the critical drivers for the urbanization of agriculture?
  • What are the specific enabling technologies for urban agriculture?
  • How do you see urbanized agriculture integrating with smart city concepts?
  • How will the urbanization of agriculture impact rural life and change land management in the future?
