The metropolitan food system quantified and georeferenced: The spatial opportunities for (peri-)urban food production and recycling of nutrients in the Oslo region

Ola Stedje. Post-doc researcher. Maria de Maeztu postdoctoral fellow at ICTA (UAB) and researcher in the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (NIBIO)

The title represents the research topic of Maria de Maeztupostdoctoral fellow Ola Stedje Hanserud at ICTA-UAB, whose work is associated with the H2020 project Integrated System Analysis of Urban Vegetation and Agriculture (URBAG). He will be working with the LET team this autumn to approach the topic and apply LET’s methodologies and knowledge to the case of the Oslo region. The work is placed within the framework of urban metabolism, primarily focusing on flows of nutrients in the regional food system. A central question in the research is: What are the spatial opportunities for urban food production and recycling of nutrients from different waste flows in the Oslo region? This question is key to understand the opportunities and limitations for scaling up urban food production being promoted for several bigger cities worldwide. In the presentation he will introduce his work, the data available for the case study so far, and his research background.
