Abstract

Korea has experienced rapid urbanization during the last forty years. Currently, the urban population comprises up to 80% of its total population. This rapid expansion of cities has brought about lots of social and ecological problems, as well. In this regard, urban and peri-urban agriculture has recently attracted lots of attention from rural as well as urban society due to its benefits. This paper introduces the current situation and issues in Korea’s urban and peri-urban agriculture, technologies and innovations which are newly developed, and policies to address concerns of urban agriculture and to strengthen the urban –rural links.
