Cities and sustainable, resilient and inclusive food systems



Cities stand as pivotal players in shaping the trajectory of food systems across urban, peri-urban and rural landscapes, as well as in implementing the right to food and enabling healthy diets.

This urban shift brings both opportunities and challenges to the forefront. The critical role of cities in addressing challenges within food systems and countering issues related to unhealthy urban diets cannot be overstated.

Join us for an event co-organized by the Global Cities Hub, the Nutrition in City Ecosystems (NICE) project, in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), to discuss how multilevel governance can help transform urban food systems and how to safely and affordably deliver and promote better nutrition and healthier diets to urban consumers.
