FAO in Geneva Nutrition Dialogue Series : Urban Food Systems for better diets: Latest from the field.
The phenomenon of urbanization is unfolding rapidly with over half of the world’s population living in cities and by 2050 an estimated two-thirds will live in urban areas. This population growth increasingly influences our food systems thus affecting food security and nutrition in all its forms. Ensuring that actions undertaken in the urban contexts improve nutrition is imperative and should not be addressed in isolation, as nutrition goals are inextricably connected with sustainability goals of other sectors. In this regard, this Dialogue will provide examples of how municipalities are working to address nutrition while also considering other development objectives. It will include concrete examples of different activities, including the development of multistakeholder platforms for knowledge sharing and action, research and analysis and implemented interventions.
