Food for the cities programme

Where we work

We are engaging with city regions around the world to develop action plans and priority areas of intervention to build sustainable and resilient city region food systems. The aim is to assess the diverse situations that local governments, urban planners and urban dwellers encounter in different regions of the world and to provide localized solutions to better address pressing issues.

FAO, through its Food for the Cities Programme, has launched projects in the city regions of Colombo (Sri Lanka), Lusaka (Zambia), Kitwe (Zambia), Medellín (Colombia) and Dakar (Senegal).

The RUAF Foundation, through its City Food Tools Project, has launched projects in the city regions of Utrecht (The Netherlands), Quito (Ecuador) and Toronto (Canada).
