Crossing a transitory phase period between Agriculture, Traditional, Urban and Modern, the affirmation of a conquering alimentary identity and Nationalist openings is confuse with an Extraordinary Demographic Period of human scale history. Millions of people are worried about the innovation of urban agriculture for food and health security.

Such a step is necessary to endorse the word of reading, for comparism and review of an agriculture in full mutation. It also instigates by referring to History, Social force, Economic stakes and Diplomatic globalization food teste, intention and invention, which change with the everyday society. You will find out that analysis done in this article are sometime completely done events through original texts, assembled around the five fundamental notions: International Relations and Geopolitical Agriculture of yesterday; Yesterday Urban Economic Agriculture; Environmental and Food Climate Stakes, Science and Culture adapted to agriculture and food mutations.
