What makes urban food policy happen

Author: Jess Halliday, Corinna Hawkes
Publisher:IPES-Food
2017

This report examines the development and delivery of urban food policies, focusing on enablers and barriers. The authors explore five case studies (Brazil, Kenya, The Netherlands, Canada, and the U.S.), from small towns that are taking their first steps in designing food-related policy, to big cities that are striving to maintain highly-developed, integrated policies. The report identifies a set of common enabling elements including (i) data, monitoring and learning; (ii) ‘vertical’ multi-level governance; (iii) ‘horizontal’ city-level governance; (iv) participatory policy process; (v) funding; and (vi) political commitment.
