Urban Farmers Community in Palestine between the Marginalizing and Empowering under the Political Instability

Auther : Samer H. Raddad

The study aimed to identify the social and economic characteristics of the Palestinian urban agricultural community, in addition to identifying the problems and challenges of this society and ways to empower it.
Methodology: Personal observation, field study and personal interviews with urban farmers formed the methodological basis, qualitative and quantitative, for this study.
Results: The study showed the clear negative impact of the political and geopolitical factors represented by the Israeli policies on Palestinian urban agriculture and its weakening. The absence of legislation for agricultural activity and spatial competition on urban land, in addition to the negative view of urban agriculture due to the focus on its risks rather than its benefits, is one of the most important factors behind the marginalization of this society in a large way in Palestine. Empowering the Palestinian urban agricultural community depends mainly on two pillars. The first is to work to improve the performance of urban farmers themselves through the establishment of an organized formal institutional framework that works to strengthen the urban agricultural community itself. As for the second trend, it is related to decision-makers and urban and agricultural policymakers in Palestine.
Conclusion: Developing the Palestinian urban agriculture sector and supporting Palestinian urban farmers will transform agricultural activities in cities from an element of urban sustainability in situations of peace to a tool of resistance in light of political instability.
Keywords: Urban Agriculture, Urban Farmers Society, Political Instability, Plaestine.
