Agenda 21 has made a major contribution to a range of aspects of development initiatives, of which one chapter, Chapter Seven, focuses on sustainable human settlements. There are a growing number of publications on issues relating to food supply to urban areas in the less developed world. These publications have several focuses, particularly fruit and vegetables, urban agriculture and food marketing. The main aspects of the chapter of Agenda 21 relating to sustainable human settlements are discussed and also the role that the emerging research on urban food systems suggests can be played in establishing sustainable development in cities in less developed countries. Particular attention is paid to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.
