Together with Master students from Geography/ Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences (HU) and Technische Universität Berlin (TU), our forementioned EAGER scholars were also part of the joint study project on Urban Agriculture in Berlin, Nairobi and Daressalaam.

From the German side it was led by Prof. Sabine Fuss and Dipl.-Geogr. Maria Velte (lecturer, both from Geography Department, HU). From the Kenyan side Dr. Makau Kitata (lecturer at Department of Literature, UoN) and Ms Rebecca N. Karaya-Kigwa (Tutorial fellow with teaching duties at the Department of Agricultural Sciences at KARU) and from the Tanzanian side Ms. Neema A. Munuo (Assistant Research Fellow with teaching duties at ARDHI) and Dr. Nestory E. Yamungu (lecturer in the Department of Geography at UDSM) completed the team and supported the project with very valuable case study inputs, talks, moderation and advisory engagement. Most of the took place online. Nevertheless, we were able to invite our Kenynan partners to our hybrid Result workshop „Exploring Urban Agriculture in Global South and North“ from 11.-13.10.2021 in Berlin. Due to pandemic restrictions, invitation of staff from Tanzania was unfortunately impossible. We very much hope to find another option for an invitation to Berlin in the near future.
