This paper from SNV explores what is currently understood about the food and nutrition security challenges faced by the urban poor. The authors draw on evidence from Africa, Latin America, and Asia, capturing needs on the ground and exploring how urbanization is likely to increase pressure on global food systems. They propose four inter-related pillars in an “urban agenda”, where interventions across (i) governance, (ii) the food environment, (iii) employment, and (iv) social and behavior change can improve wellbeing in cities.
