The city of Rosario, Argentina, collaborated with NGOs to create its highly successful Urban Agriculture Program (UAP). Concerted efforts on the part of the municipality, including provision of funding, implementation of supportive policies, and forward-looking city planning, contributed to the program’s success. One major outcome of the project was the development of a strong local food economy in the city, which offered residents income opportunities and reduced food insecurity. In addition, the project helped revitalize polluted urban areas via regenerative agriculture techniques.
