Abstract

The investigation of how people’s subjective well-being may have an impact on agriculture and its production processes require us to understand how agriculture and its products (especially food products) are appreciated and how people’s well-being can influence agriculture and its products. People’s well-being is presented by referring to the situation in several countries in North Africa and how it has influenced agricultural development especially in relation to agricultural products, including how the products are produced. People’s well-being can also affect how urban land and potential urban land are perceived, planned, and developed. Where land has not yet been developed for urban uses within a city or on the fringes of cities, the potential is there for such land to become part of urban agriculture, depending upon the characteristics of the land and how citizens via their well-being decide to support agricultural development particularly in relation to food production. In addition, agricultural development on potential urban land can contribute substantially to the well-being of several segments of the population. In our discussion, we provide different examples of how people’s well-being can at the same time contribute to sustainable agricultural production including food production and can therefore contribute to creating urban development in which “Urban” agricultural development can contribute substantially to sustainable urban development.
