Climate change will bring new pressures to food systems and exacerbate existing ones. Responding to the challenges of climate change will  therefore  necessitate a ‘food systems transformation’ in urban areas. This necessary transformation will require decision-makers to  take leadership, recognizing that:
■ Urban food systems are major contributors to climate change.
■ Urban food systems are highly vulnerable to climate change.
■ Action is needed now to ensure urban populations can access sufficient, sustainably-produced, affordable, safe and nutritious food in a changing climate.

The Initiative gathered experts in 4 webinars, and published 2 shorts movies and a Policy Perspectives Paper.
