In addition, urban poor face unique challenges since they are highly dependent on the informal sector, are more vulnerable to income and price shocks and have limited access to basic services. While informal markets are key to ensure FNS, government policies tend to focus on control, regulation or eradication of urban informal food economy.

Embracing and exploring diversity in sustainable transition pathways to food and nutrition security

The European ‘fragmented foodscape’ is constituted by a range of various and often contrasting social practices that co-exist and interact with another. Hence we have selected a diverse range of food practices all over Europe in order to explore whether and if so how they enhance food security.
