What role does urban and peri-urban agriculture play in city food systems in the context of COVID and climate change?

January 21st . 12pm CET, 2021

The majority of the world’s population lives in cities, reaching 65% in 2050. Providing ready access to healthy fresh food, bringing communities together, and educating urban populations about the food system are amongst the drivers for urban and peri-urban agriculture in many cities throughout the world. This webinar will explore how this has developed as part of strategic city-wide approaches to the food system, and will ask whether this activity is more or less important and practical in the context of current crises including COVID and climate change.
