Abstract The concept of agroparks is a type of sustainable intensification that is consistent with metropolitan agriculture: an agropark is a spatial cluster of different agricultural functions and related economic activities. The concept of agroparks has been the object of increasing interest in recent years. One of the difficulties facing the development of an agropark is the uncertainty concerning the feasibility and the return to be obtained. This reflects the fact that an agropark consists of various mutually dependent businesses. The result is a complex set of uncertainties in relation to technological, institutional and market development. This research is concerned with analysing the uncertainties and opportunities of agroparks. This has resulted in a risk model that identifies the qualitative and/or quantitative uncertainties of an agropark. Appropriate measures and management strategies can be pinpointed as a result, thereby converting potential risks into realistic opportunities. The risk model goes hand in hand with a four-stage plan for risk analysis and management. The results of this research allow entrepreneurs to make well-founded investment choices, thereby contributing towards the development of agroparks and more sustainable agriculture.
