Food security in an urbanising society

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Netherlands

  The Netherlands

Today already more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By 2050 this will be risen to two-thirds. The continuous increase of urban population is due to factors like rural-urban migration, natural disasters or livelihood insecurities. Providing food and nutrition security for the rapidly expanding populations in the world’s cities is a pressing challenge in this changing world. Delivering nutritious food to cities is a complex problem that is also challenged by natural resource scarcity, climate change, and population growth, which affect food systems globally.

For this events fellowships are available.

Course date: 4 - 15 September 2017
Deadline: 24 July 2017

Course on Lost Harvest and wasted food

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Rwanda
  11 September 2017 - 09:00 to 22 September 2017 - 17:00
  Wageningen, The Netherlands

Stark contrasts exist in how we manage the food we have available. While in developing and transition countries food losses mainly happen post-harvest, in the urban and wealthier communities good food is wasted in retail stages of the supply chain and by consumers. Strategies to minimize food losses and waste along the chain can contribute to food security and sustainable food production.
