Urban Food Actions Platform

An efficient urban food policy needs a broad involvement of stakeholders, allowing horizontal (at the local level), vertical (with other territorial levels), and multisectorial coordinations. Such governance mechanisms are not easy to set.
That is why this section shares examples of participatory multi-level food governance, multi-stakeholder platforms or food councils, education and awareness raising campaigns, open data of food policies, internal organizations of local governments, partnerships with civil society, the private sector, universities and international organizations.
