The Supply Paradox
As a reminder, Paris has set a target of creating 100 hectares of additional vegetation in the city by 2020. To make this bet a success, Mayor Anne Hidalgo has invited "Paris-cultivators" (gardeners, landscapers, farmers, architects,...) to develop ideas. Launched by Deputy Mayor Pénélope Komitès, the call for projects "Paris-culteurs" "will cover 40 Parisian sites, currently being identified, which will be made available to innovators to develop urban agriculture and vegetalisation projects".
