The present study aimed to present a literature review on animal husbandry experiences in order to identify the feasibility of animal production in urban and periurban agriculture as a food security instrument, observing its limitations and potential. A systematic literature review was carried out on the topic and the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses methodology was used to select the articles. From the data analysis, the understanding emerged that animal husbandry in urban and periurban areas has existed for hundreds of years and has always been present in several cities around the world. This practice can represent an inevitable challenge, with positive aspects, such as being an ally of domestic food security and enabling the generation of income and employment, as well as negative aspects, such as the presence of odors, noise and dissemination of zoonoses. Faced with this conflict, as well as the verification of the feasibility of this practice, the importance of public policies capable of organizing the activity, minimizing health risks and possible resulting conflicts is highlighted.
