Abstract : On city outskirts agriculture still takes up a significant percentage of land and manpower. This agriculture is extremely diversified and includes numerous value added speculations. It plays an important role in supplying cities with fresh produce, such as leafy vegetables. It also plays a role in protecting cities against flooding, maintaining a certain cultural identity as well as waste recycling. This multifunctionality is, however, under the threat of several constraints: land use above all, as well as the low ecological sustainability of production systems due to excessive chemical input.
