Enabling public and private investments to promote Local Food Systems


Achieving food and nutrition security is a significant challenge for the developing world and critical to alleviating poverty. The implications are broad and transversal: food security directly impacts on people’s health and education, their ability to work and to generate income as well as to assert citizens’ rights and achieve equality. In developing countries, women and girls appear as the most vulnerable to the impact of food insecurity as they have less access and control over resources than men.
