    The complexity of urbanization and food-system sustainability means national policies, sub-national and city-level strategies, plans and actions need to be more coherent to have impact. Currently, the majority of national and city-level urban policies do not adequately address food-system and nutritional issues, nor do policies in food security and nutrition address urban issues. There is a clear need to ensure adequate coordination between the various levels of government and institutions involved in urban food-policy development. National Urban Policies provide an opportunity to integrate food systems and natural-resource management into national development policy frameworks and take a major step towards the 2030 Agenda. Inclusive food governance mechanisms, such as food policy councils, and the development of integrated and evidence-based food plans and actions are crucial strategies that municipal decision-makers could use to integrate food systems into the urban development policy processes. This programme will help mainstream sustainable food systems and nutrition into the formulation and implementation of urban policies, fostering leadership at local level and promoting innovative synergies between local and national authorities, civil-society organizations, the private sector, academic institutions and other participants.

    The third Independent Food Systems Summit Dialogue on "Pathways for the future of Sustainable Food Systems in the Mediterranean", co-organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA), and One Planet Network’s Sustainable Food Systems Programme (OPN-SFSP), will be held on 9 December 2021. The event is conceived as a follow-up to the two other dialogues held in April and June 2021, as well as to the whole UN Food Systems Summit process in the context of the Mediterranean region. The virtual event will bring together different stakeholders in order to take stock of regional and national efforts as a follow-up to the UN Food Systems Summit in the Mediterranean region, and exchange on the way forward and on opportunities for collaboration at national and regional level.
