In this chapter the linkages between urban agriculture and disasters and emergencies are explored, by providing a broad illustration of the potential role that urban agriculture can play in “disaster risk management”. Disaster risk management is an overarching term that covers all aspects of disaster management, including pre-disaster activities such as “disaster risk reduction” (DRR) programmes that aim to build resilience, as well as post-disaster activities such as working with refugees in camps or urban areas, linking relief, rehabilitation and development (LRRD).
