This project will investigate the diffusion of urban agriculture and urban greening through cities, and the impact this has on urban ecosystem services. Relevant ecosystem services include recreation, air quality, and moderation of temperature extremes.

Supervisor: Dr Charlie Wilson
Start Date: October 2017
Funding amount: £14,296

Excerpt:

Activities
Specific research activities include:

compiling time series and geospatial data on the spread of urban agriculture and urban greening

mapping spatial diffusion and identifying spatial contagion effects

analysing socioeconomic, community and policy variables explaining diffusion

analysing impacts of spatial diffusion on urban ecosystem services

The adopters of innovations such as urban agriculture and urban greening are cities and their constituent administrative bodies and communities. Cities are therefore the units of analysis. However, there is considerable scope for the successful applicant to choose where to collect and analyse data (e.g., UK, EU, global).
