Urban food logistics and climate change
IUFN is working to gather evidence on the relationship between food, climate change and urban issues. Indeed, if the interactions between food systems and climate change have been studied in the last few years, specific urban-related challenges are, to our knowledge, a somewhat less studied area.
One particular topic that calls our attention is urban food logisitics.
Urban areas particularly rely on their ability to bring in food from their hinterlands (these being the local area or the other side of the world). Food logisitics is therefore key to feeding the urban population. However, it is particularly difficult to gather evidence on the way this sector is preparing to climate change.
Would any of you know research or interesting experiences that have taken place to either curb urban food logistics-related emissions or adapt existing food logistical activities to climate change? We are looking for evidence from either OECD or BRIC countries.
Many thanks for your help!
