    This discussion provides space for African cities to share their experiences and strategies for a more resilient urban food system. Insights are shared from the FAO Questionnaire: Food Systems and COVID-19 - Municipal Response to the Emergency, which fielded over 200 African city responses. Discussions will move beyond the impact and response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to more long term approaches for ensuring continued access to nutritious food in the face of climatic and political shocks.

    Urban food systems governance
    Current context and future opportunities
    2020
    Also available in:

    This report presents insights and emerging lessons on food systems governance from the experience of nine cities that have developed urban food interventions – Baltimore, Belo Horizonte, Lima, Medellín, Nairobi, Quito, Seoul, Shanghai and Toronto – and draws on diverse sources of secondary information regarding the experiences of other cities throughout the world. It highlights entry points for the governance of urban food systems issues; common procedural and content-related considerations when addressing those issues; predominant governance models; and operational opportunities for future investment. Successful examples can encourage other local governments to adapt new approaches and innovate within their own context. Every city will need to navigate the political economy to customize their choices and interventions to local circumstances, priority problems and economic opportunities.
