dc.description.abstract This study is an analysis of the contribution of urban crop production to household food security in Warren Park suburb of Harare. The study sought to establish the level of contribution of urban crop cultivation to household food security. A variety of research techniques were used to gather the relevant data including in-depth interviews, observations and official data. The results of the study confirm that urban crop production has a significant contribution to household food security for those who practice it. The research also identified key challenges faced by people engaged in urban agriculture and makes recommendations to the government and local authority to fully support urban agriculture through allocation of land, provide farmer input support and development of a comprehensive policy framework as well as coming up with relevant legislation. en_US
