Sources and Resources
The focus of this book is IDRC’s support to research on urban agriculture. For those interested in learning more about the topic in general, there is a great deal of literature, both printed and on the Internet. This appendix of source material is organized into two sections. The first lists all those references specifically cited in this book. The second section lists Web sites and coordinates of selected IDRC research partners that were involved with the projects featured in this book. Note that for documents reporting on IDRC-funded research, the IDRC project number is listed at the end of the reference, like this: “(IDRC 101085).” This number can be used for further follow-up, such as when searching the main IDRC Web site, www.idrc.ca.
This book is an integral part of IDRC’s thematic Web dossier on urban agriculture: http://www.idrc.ca/in_focus_cities. The full text of the book is available online and leads the reader into a virtual web of resources that explores two decades of research on UA. The Web site, which is duplicated on the CD that is packaged with this book, includes not only a thorough bibliography of UA research, but also a selection of case studies, full-text books, slide shows, and other useful resources.
