Speakers:

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?
