Urban Food Strategies. The rough guide to sustainable food systems

Author: Foodlinks
Publisher:Foodlinks
2018

This guide is part of a collective effort to provide motivation and support for those actors interested in building more sustainable food systems in urban contexts. This document has been developed under the framework of Foodlinks1, a European project where civil society organizations, policy makers and academics have come together to share and co-produce knowledge around Urban Food Strategies (UFS) with the aim of furthering the political, practical and academic agendas. Far from proposing a recipe to develop UFS, we have compiled distinct motivations, measures, ideas, processes and examples that we hope are useful to inspire action towards more sustainable and just food systems for all. The document is structured in three sections: 1. Why do we need Urban Food Strategies in the first place? 2. What is an Urban Food Strategy? 3. How do we develop an Urban Food Strategy?

Region: Europe
