Local Government and Food Security: An Evidence Review

Posted on 17. Apr, 2013 by in Food related reports, Resources

This review of existing intiatives across Australia, Canada, UK, and the US is a first step to understand associations between various factors in the urban form, the food system and community and household food security.

But one thing is sure: the urban form and the food system can be modified and the modifications have the potential to have an impact on food security.

Whilst the literature is growing, we need much more documentation of what is being done, and better process, impact and outcome evaluation. We also need more experience and evidence from the local rather than North American scene.
