Sustainable Food in Urban Communities
Start date: Jan 31, 2013, End date: Apr 29, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Thematic Network "Sustainable Food in Urban Communities" will focus on developing low-carbon and resource-efficient urban food systems. Indeed, the food sector alone accounts for over 30% of global consumer energy demand and produces over 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions (FAO 2011). Reducing the carbon footprint and improving overall sustainability of urban food systems requires addressing all steps of the food chain: growing (production), delivering (supply) and enjoying (demand).
