Street Food: The way forward for better food safety and nutrition
This article summarizes the outcomes of an FSN Forum online discussion on Street Foods and is included in the publication: Street Food. Culture, economy, health and governance, just released by Routledge.
Due to continuing rural-urban migration, over 50% of the world’s population now lives in densely populated urban areas. They rely heavily on all sorts of markets for their daily food needs. These are supplied through overstressed, complex agro-logistical networks that often fail. This course offered by the Centre for Development Innovation of Wageningen UR focuses on how rural production and urban market systems can be integrated such that rural and urban communities can access nutritious food that is both affordable and acceptable.
From August 13th to September 5th CIARD will host the e-forum on “Forward Thinking for ICT use in Asian Agri-Food Chains” organized by AFITA, FAO and GFAR.
