Feeding Cities: Charting a Research and Practice Agenda Toward Food Security
Keywords:Food Access, Food Distribution, Food Production, Waste
AbstractThis commentary details an action agenda for practice and research contributed to by more than 70 experts and 450 attendees of the Feeding Cities: Food Security in a Rapidly Urbanizing World conference, held at the University of Pennsylvania in March 2013. They discussed such global issues as hunger, malnourishment, and obesity and called for policies to address them through a variety of food production, distribution, and marketing initiatives. They produced a six-point action-based agenda for future food security planning and identified best practice policies for each agenda item. Their objective is to offer a roadmap to produce and supply the world's growing urban population with healthy, affordable, and safe food in a sustainable manner and to avoid potential food security crises across the world.
