    World Forum on Urban Forests
    Greener, healthier, and happier cities for all: a call for action
    2018
    Urban forests and trees can help to address these challenges and help attain many of the Sustainable Development Goals, including SDG 11 on making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. The UN’s New Urban Agenda further emphasizes the contributions of urban forests and green spaces towards sustainable development. Meanwhile, cities worldwide have shown that investments in urban forestry can contribute greatly to the quality of life. More international organizations, and research and science institutions are examining the part green spaces and trees play in achieving global sustainability goals. What is now needed is an integrated approach that encourages shared action and experiences for greener, healthier and happier cities for all. This call for action is the first step.

    Whether we live in small or large cities, we all need healthy urban forests, trees and green space for our livelihoods, recreation, and, in general, for our well-being. Too often, the enormous value of urban trees and green spaces is forgotten in the rapid expansion of towns and cities. Now is the time to take global action to preserve these precious resources.

    Food systems for an urbanizing world 2018
    Also available in:

    Food Systems for an Urbanizing World is a joint report prepared by the World Bank and FAO. It aims to stimulate discussion and suggest pathways to support local and national governments, and civil society and private sector actors in their efforts to improve the performance and capacity of food systems. The report describes the diversity and ever-changing nature of food systems, with interlinked traditional, modern and informal channels that respond to different market segments and different consumer preferences. It also underscores the importance of targeting support to the type of city and food system. The task is not an easy one. Data are weak and empirical analysis is weaker. As cities’ engagement in urban food issues is relatively new, the institutions, governance mechanisms and capacities needed for effective design, implementation and delivery of this agenda must be strengthened. Finding effective ways to prioritize, mobilize and coordinate contributions from multiple sectors will be essential for achieving food system goals.
