Knowledge for better food systems

Free webinars: Climate change urban food initiative

This initiative launched by Fondation Nicolas Hulot (FNH), the International Urban Food Network (IUFN) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) it aims to highlight the strategic links between sustainable food, sustainable urban development and climate change. The initiative will showcase successful mechanisms and approaches to help respond to the challenges of achieving sustainable urban food systems in a changing climate.  

The intention is to engage a broad group of stakeholders:

  • The international community (decision makers, NGOs, researcher, citizens) who work on climate change and urban food systems: the project will provide them with clear examples and proposals for action.
  • Local Authorities who are organizing to participate in COP21.
  • The General Public, as any social change needs to gain public support.

In a series of free webinars featuring international experts and practitioners, keys of implementing synergies between climate and food action at local level will be discussed.

While some of the food system challenges facing humanity are local, in an interconnected world, adopting a global perspective is essential. Many environmental issues, such as climate change, need supranational commitments and action to be addressed effectively. Due to ever increasing global trade flows, prices of commodities are connected through space; a drought in Romania may thus increase the price of wheat in Zimbabwe.
