Résumé partiel _ The main aim/objective of this research is to understand the opportunities for Ethiopia’s Urban Productive Safety Net Program (UPSNP) to promote Urban Agriculture (UA) as an activity to improve food and nutrition security outcomes for the urban poor. The study was done in two sub-cities of Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia, Kolfe Keraniyo and Nifas Silk lafeto (woreda 2 & 5). Both quantitative and qualitative data collection methods were used in the study . In total three Focus Group Discussions were done and a total of 45 households purposively sampled were administered a semi-structured questionnaire. The study used the Food Consumption Score to measure households’ food consumption, their main sources and the main food groups consumed.

In order to answer the main research question ‘What is the potential of urban agriculture when promoted through the Urban Productive Safety Net Programme to improve food and nutrition security of the poor in Addis Ababa.’the study tried to answer the following sub research questions : the impact on food and nutrition security of the urban poor (non UPSNP beneficiaries) currently involved in urban agriculture and those that benefit from the UPSNP and are involved in informal urban agriculture ; Current challenges faced by those involved in urban agriculture ; How do important stakeholders and actors in the Urban Productive Safety Net Programme think about the potential of urban agriculture as part of the UPSNP, and What are the requirements and approaches for the UPSNP to promote urban agriculture amongst UPSNP beneficiaries in ways that increase their food and nutrition security ?.
