Urban Food Actions Platform

Food production depends on and impacts on ecosystem services and biodiversity, with spillover effects going beyond food. 

How can you optimize agriculture production while managing ecosystem services and biodiversity and improving resilience to climate change?   You can, for example, by promoting and strengthening nutrition-sensitive and diversified urban and peri-urban food production and processing based on sustainable methods as a way to mitigate heat island effect; reducing energy needed to provide building cooling and heating; (indirectly) raising awareness against food waste; promoting and strengthening sustainable urban and peri-urban food agriculture in order to improve access of healthy, diversified and fresh products.
