Urban agriculture is an activity of growing importance in cities of the developing world, including South Africa. This article focuses on informing public administrators about contemporary policy debates on urban agriculture.

The policy experience of the City of Cape Town is analysed as offering potential 'good practice' for informing local policy development for urban agriculture in South Africa.
