Summary

In the city of Zurich, Switzerland, policies for agriculture in urban areas have evolved towards fulfilling multiple functions. The production of food is a part, but not the main goal, of a multifunctional approach that reflects the aim of ensuring diverse services for city dwellers. This multifunctional approach fosters biodiversity and provides both an attractive recreational landscape and education opportunities for city residents. The city administration has implemented various support mechanisms to ensure the implementation and maintenance of the multifunctional concept.
