Planning for urban agriculture can be one element in the development of "pro-poor" urban strategies in South Africa. This article examines international and South African writings and research on the role of urban agriculture in poverty reduction. It is argued that there is a need for policy guidelines to support emerging local-level initiatives aimed at encouraging urban agriculture across South Africa. The foundation for a set of policy guidelines for South Africa may be found in the best practice of international policy interventions for urban agriculture.
