INVITATION TO SEMINAR SERIES

FOOD: Systems | Security | Inclusivity

Food is fundamental not only to well-being, but to our social and economic lives. Despite this, one of the biggest challenges facing many people in cities all over the world today is hunger. As cities rapidly urbanise, different pressures are placed on the food system which has resulted in the least nutritious food being the most affordable.

This series of seminars and special event for World Food Day will explore the informal economy, food systems, food security and urbanisation. Please see the African Centre for Cities website for more details.
