60 percent of the world agricultural lands in the margin of cities

IUESA: It has been estimated that urban areas will be tripled regarding their area by 2030 expanding toward agricultural lands resulting in reduction of agricultural outcomes.


Nearly 60 percent of the world agricultural lands are in the margin of cities. This is a concerning situation since marginal settlements are more fertile and productive. The process of agricultural production will confront a serious threat in future not because of climate changes but because of cities’ expansion.

German researchers stated that they expect the outcome of semi-urban lands is more than average.  We neglect the impact of cities’ expansion to agricultural lands.

According to the Guardian, although this figure is not impressive at first glance, the situation changes regionally.  It is different in each country and product. For example, it will be reduced by 80 percent in Asia and Africa together because of urbanization growth.
