La implementación de huertos urbanos en las azoteas de los edificios permitiría producir alimentos agrícolas frescos, sanos y sostenibles para garantizar la soberanía alimentaria de las ciudades, cada vez más pobladas. Así se desprende de la investigación sobre agricultura urbana desarrollada por el Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (ICTA-UAB) en el marco del proyecto Fertilecity, cuyos resultados se presentaron ayer con la participación de un centenar de personas procedentes de instituciones públicas, privadas y asociaciones.
