Abstract
In search of sustainable cities, the compact green city has become an ideal for urban planners globally and green infrastructure has been reevaluated since raised awareness of the multifunctions of greenery. Consequently, the interest in urban agriculture has been renewed and new forms of projects are currently being established internationally.

In search of sustainable cities, the compact green city has become an ideal for urban planners globally and green infrastructure has been reevaluated since raised awareness of the multifunctions of greenery. Consequently, the interest in urban agriculture has been renewed and new forms of projects are currently being established internationally. Being an explicit advantageous sustainable planning strategy, the concept remains less explored in the field of human geography. This qualitative study aims to investigate the phenomena of urban agriculture in the city of Malmö and how it is related to current sustainable planning ideals. Based on interviews and document analysis the research explores attitudes and ideas among stakeholders in relation to the municipality in Malmö. Focusing on two different recent forms of urban agriculture, findings and analysis demonstrate various challenges and opportunities connected to strategies for a compact green city and the organisational establishment process. At the same time drivers and goals are identified with interests in different sustainability aspects. The thesis concludes that current sustainable planning ideals affect the way different urban agriculture projects are being established and prioritised. It emphasises the complexity of the versatile concept of urban agriculture as a sustainable planning strategy and the need for further investigation. (Less)
