In times of rapid urbanization the growing demand for food is facing cities worldwide. Food connects us as global citizens, but may also pose negative impact on the environment and food insecurity for the urban poor. Increasing awareness about the opportunities of urban agriculture, together with a growing interest in organic and locally produced food, provides an excellent opportunity to take a closer look at the way we organize our urban food supply chains today. In this program we explore the role of food in the way we plan our cities, and the opportunities to increase local production and urban farming, to strengthen the resilience of the urban food system.
