FAO framework for the Urban Food Agenda
The FAO Framework for the Urban Food Agenda serves as a corporate strategy to address emerging calls from countries, responding to demands for a multi-sectorial, multi-stakeholder and multi-level approach to food insecurity and malnutrition across the rural-urban continuum.
This publication on SIDS highlights the current challenges, opportunities and FAO examples in action to catalyse change, including activities to help implement the Global Action Programme on Food Security and Nutrition in SIDS.
Integrating food into urban planning
While urbanisation worldwide sets up unprecedented challenges for feeding cities with accessible, afordable food and healthy diets, urban food security and food systems are receiving growing attention at an international level and in a growing number of cities of all sizes.
This presentation of the publication Integrating food into Urban planning shines a light on how best to integrate food systems into urban planning, if cities are to ensure food security for all, improve nutrition and management of natural resources.
The analysis of gender-based constraints provides critical information and entry points for the identification of efficient and culturally acceptable solutions to food loss.
The publication complements the FAO Guiding Framework on gender-sensitive value chain development by providing practical tools and examples of successful approaches to address the gender-based constraints that affect agrifood value chains.
The Accelerator for Agriculture and Agroindustry Development and Innovation (3ADI+) is a joint value chain and market systems development programme, spearheaded by FAO and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
The increasing demand for high-value products on international and domestic food markets provides an opportunity for developing countries to generate economic growth and gainful employment. investments continue to hinder the development of inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems.
The purpose of this publication (part of the FAO series on sustainable food value chain development) is to facilitate the systematic integration of gender equality dimensions into value chain development programmes and projects.
