This master thesis investigates the role that urban food production plays in the city of Vienna, Austria and whether such urban farming strategies are feasible for Vienna. Climate change, population growth and urbanisation cause natural resources such as land and water to become scarcer, thus putting agriculture and peoples access to food at danger. Food cultivation is furthermore, traditionally produced in designated agriculture areas sometimes far away from the consumers in cities. Therefore, food production within urban settlements is generally not visible in urban development or planning strategies. The data for this thesis was collected through literature analysis covering governance, urban food planning, agricultural planning and urban farming, and semi-structured interviews with experts, such as city officials, farm owners and Start Up founders. To determine whether urban farms are suited for Vienna, a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis of urban farms was carried out, as well as an instrument study to establish the extent of the visibility of urban agriculture in Vienna and an actors study to determine the networks and relationships of the actors in agriculture in the capital city of Austria. Urban farms provide cities, neighbourhoods and locals with multiple possibilities and benefits, such as a decrease in the heat-island effect, cleaner air, fresher and healthier produce, job and educational opportunities and spreading awareness of the environment, nature and nutrition. On the other hand, the implementation of urban farms may be expensive and urban agriculture does not (yet) play a significant role in the planning instruments in Vienna, although these planning instruments are laid out in a very opportunistic way for urban farms and agricultural Start Ups.
