ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability)’s food team is held a session at COP27 on Feeding the city for healthy people, landscapes, and climate. Food systems account for up to 37% of global GHG emissions. (Note from the #ICDAsfsToolkit Coordinator – SFS do not emit this much!) 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 explores the role of cities in driving food systems transformation in a multi-level governance context. Dietitians-Nutritionists’ voices are needed! 12 November 2022 from at 10:00-11:30 UTC+2 at the Local Governments and Municipal Authorities Constituency (LGMA) Multilevel Action Pavilion at COP27 on Whova, a virtual conference platform.
