The UFS Coalition supports sustainable and inclusive transformation of urban food systems to advance equitable access to safe, nutritious foods for all.
Many city and local stakeholders worldwide are taking actions towards sustainable food systems transformation. However, there is a lot of work to be done to ensure that cities and local governments contribute to national and global platforms and decision-making processes which promote sustainable food systems transformation.
A number of like-minded actors have been active in an informal urban food systems working group led by FAO and GAIN since 2020. Together, they represent a diverse hub of expertise, bringing together city networks, non-governmental organizations, academia, and key UN institutions.
