The food system must be made sustainable, guaranteeing access and active involvement of all stakeholders along the supply chain, promoting a resource-efficient and low carbon food system.
Agriculture – including horticulture, livestock, fisheries, forestry, and fodder and milk production – is increasingly spreading to towns and cities. Urban agriculture provides fresh food, generates employment, recycles urban wastes, creates greenbelts, and strengthens cities’ resilience to climate change.
Urban agriculture is practised by 800 million people worldwide, it helps low-income urban residents save money on food purchases. FAO promotes policies that recognize urban food production as a legitimate land use and economic activity.
