Abstract:Following the fall of the Derg Government in May 1991, Ethiopia has witnessed a wide range of government policy reforms. However, no attempt has been made to introduce a policy for urban/peri-urban agriculture (UPA) in the country. This study was undertaken to assess the need for a policy framework for UPA in Ethiopia. The study particularly assesses the positive impacts of UPA in terms of livelihood enhancement, environmental greening, waste recycling and job creation. The author argues that it is imperative to formulate a policy framework for UPA in Ethiopia so that the country can make the most out of the sector. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
