An increasing number of Cities are establishing local food strategies. The EU funded “Food Smart Cities for Development ” network will result in an Urban Food Pact, to be signed during the Milan World Expo 2015. The pact will orientate initiatives in cities worldwide to increase their grip on sustainable local food systems.
“Local urban food policy in relation to the global food sovereignty debate ” Was the seminar held in Ghent on 11-12 June 2015. It brought together more than 40 food experts from all over the world. Those participants contributed to the larger debate on sustainable local food policies.
