Food is back in town
The world is increasingly urban. What urban dwellers eat now and will eat in the future, and how this food is brought to them, will impact the sustainability of our food systems. We therefore need to work on urban food systems – i.e. the wide array of activities that bring food to urban dwellers.
Cities are both contributing – and vulnerable – to major challenges: climate change, resource depletion, soil degradation, health issues, social inequalities… They are increasingly facing food insecurity issues.
Citizens, NGOs, civil servants, private companies… all over the world, food innovators are developing solutions to face up to the challenges. And scientists are producing analysis that would be useful to them, but too often, it gets lost in translation.
Urban Food Futures helps them by making available complex and rich scientific information to these food innovators.
