The world is rapidly urbanizing. How does this affect hunger and malnutrition? IFPRI’s 2017 Global Food Policy Report takes an in-depth look at the challenges and opportunities of urbanization for food security and nutrition.
Critical questions addressed in this Report include:
- What do we know about the impacts of urbanization on hunger and nutrition?
- What are our greatest research and data needs for better policy making that will ensure food security and improve diets for growing urban populations?
- How can we better connect rural smallholders to urban food consumers to ensure that smallholders and urban residents benefit from expanding urban food markets?
- What role do informal markets play in feeding cities, and how can they be better governed to increase urban food security?
