Major Gathering on Urban Food Policy

Local government officials from cities in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East are to gather in France later this year for a meeting with researchers and development actors on urban food policies. Among the organisers of the event, which will take place in Montpellier, is CAAST-Net Plus partner, CIRAD, a French centre promoting agricultural research for development. “The conference will explore three strategic levers that city and urban region governments can mobilize: markets infrastructure and logistics (wholesale, retail, transportation, etc.); catering services (school, popular restaurants, street food, etc.); the new forms of connection between urban and rural areas (twinning, urban investment in agriculture, etc.),” the event’s website says.
