Planning for Equitable Urban and Regional Food Systems

Author: Raja, Samina; Morgan, Kevin; Hall, Enjoli
Publisher:Alexandrine Press
2017

This special issue fills a gap in the literature by documenting how the growing engagement of the planning and design disciplines subverts, reinforces, or exacerbates inequities and injustices within territorially framed food systems. Authors from across the Global North and South explore the role of planning and design in communities’ food systems, while explicitly considering the imbalances in equity, justice, and power. In so doing, they draw our attention to city and regional food systems as a space and a lever for equity and justice.
