From 11th to 13th September 2013 COST Action UAE held its 3rd WG Meeting at the NUIM Campus in Maynooth near Dublin.
In a public presentation and discussion session with Simon Coveney, Irish Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine and local stakeholders and Activists the COST UAE Members were informed about Urban Agriculture in Ireland. Field trips and the results of a Short Term Scientific Mission allowed to get an overview of Urban Agriculture in the Dublin reference region. A bigger perspective was provided by the keynote speech on Urban Agriculture in Asian cities by Prof. Makoto Yokohari, University of Tokio.
The Working Group sessions were dedicated to the refinement of the research methodologies and the presentation and discussion of the results of first case studies.
