Greening innovation and urban agriculture can bring dignity, empowerment and food sovereignty to refugee communities. Simple technologies and waste recovery make these techniques cost effective and adaptable. Both should be central to designing, implementing and sustaining both refugee camps and overcrowded urban areas. This report examines current and potential use of greening innovation and urban agriculture in refugee camps, cities and rural settlements in four countries. These examples demonstrate how the scaling up of greening innovation and urban agriculture could transform twenty-first century thinking around refugees with regard to food security, landscape ecology and waste recycling.
This report details the vision, mission, strategies and tactics for how we will undertake this greening innovation in refugee camps. We invite you to join us in our effort to assist the globally displaced – one tree, one garden, one life at a time.
