As the world urbanizes rapidly, the number of cities increases. They grow bigger over time and often become disconnected from their rural zones producing food. How we will manage to feed these cities in the future is a truly existential question for the majority of the world’s population. Cities consume 80% of the food worldwide, while 80% of the food is still produced in rural areas. Although the issue of food systems used to be of interest mainly in the “Global South”, it is today largely recognized that ensuring sustainable, resilient and inclusive food systems is a concern for all countries.
