The Story of Haakh (Collard): Tracing the Trajectory of Collard in the Face of Land Use Change in the Region of Kashmir

Haakh in Kashmir

Presented at the 56th Annual Conference of the American Collegiate Schools of Planning in Portland, Oregon, this working paper, the result of collaboration with researchers at the University of Kashmir, documents how land use change, poor planning decisions, and recent extreme weather events coupled with the arrival of the global food system affect production and consumption of healthy foods, particularly haakh (a green much like collards), in the Kashmir region of India. At the time of the presentation the working paper was a review of the small body of literature and government documents available.
