Feeding the city for healthy people, landscapes, and climate

Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt

LGMA session - Final card

Food systems account for up to 37% of global GHG emissions. As more than 70% of the world’s food is consumed in urban areas, cities are at the core of the problem. At the same time, city leaders have a key role to play in finding locally relevant solutions to growing social, economic and environmental challenges and in enhancing urban-rural linkages for greater resilience. Building on the global momentum for food system change, this event will explore the role of cities in driving food systems transformation in a multi-level governance context.

  • Chantal Clement, Deputy Director, IPES-Food
  • Mr. Divine Njie, Deputy Director, Food Systems and Food Safety Division, FAO
