The project “Urban Farming in Casablanca” (UAC) from the Technical University in Berlin (funded by FONA, BMBF) examined the extent to which urban agriculture can contribute to a sustainable, climate-optimized urban development using the metropolitan city of Casablanca as an example. As part of the research, four different pilot projects, that were connected to the research topic, were carried out in the peri-urban area of Casablanca. Among them are projects related to urban farming, industry, informal settlements, tourism, and organic production. The pilot projects were carried out by local stake holders and often included capacity building measures. A proposal for sustainable urban development in Casablanca until the year 2030 is presented in the linked action plan.
