The article analyses the fields of urban development and human-environment perspectives in the framework of urban processes and socioecological systems relationships. From identifying some trends of urbanization processes in Latin America and according to conceptual and methodological guidelines for the generation of interdisciplinary knowledge, the thematic routes of two multilateral agendas (HÁBITAT III y GIAHS) for environmentally sustainable urban development and resilience are discussed, particularly in the context of the socioecological principles of chinampas agriculture in Mexico City, including some guidelines for its consolidation.

Keywords : agriculture; peri-urban processes; socioecological systems; sustainability; urban development.
