The RUAF Foundation is an International network of Resource centres on Urban Agriculture and Food security that share a common vision on urban development and poverty reduction, and together implement international programmes focused on urban agriculture and food security. The RUAF Foundation undertakes activities at global, regional and local levels, through programmes like Cities farming for the Future and From Seed to Table. RUAF facilitates and supports the formulation and implementation of adequate policies and programmes on urban agriculture amongst others by the organisation of policy awareness seminars, staff training activities and especially by supporting local stakeholders (local authorities, urban producer groups, community based organisations, NGOs, universities) to create a Multi stakeholder Platform on Urban Agriculture and to develop a City Strategic Agenda on Urban Agriculture and Food Security and to design and implement local urban food production, processing and marketing projects (From Seed to Table).
