Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)

my contribution to this important issue is to identify important strategies for achieving the goal of strengthening urban and peri-urban food systems in the context of urbanization and rural transformation.

1- Create efficient and well-organized food supply chains that link rural farmers with urban market channels. This can decrease post-harvest losses, ensure timely delivery of fresh produce, and make nutritious food more available to urban consumers.

2- Encourage food processing and preservation facilities near urban regions This can support extending the shelf life of unpreserved produce, reducing food waste, and ensuring a steady supply chain of food during the year.
