All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

Since 2007 the world’s population is predominantly urban. FAO has been following with attention the acceleration of urbanisation over the last 20 years and its implications for the Organisation. FAO’s Strategic Framework 2000-2015 and corresponding Medium Term Plans therefore identified Food for the Cities as a Priority Area for Inter-disciplinary Action.
This report presents the challenges of food and nutrition security, agriculture and ecosystem management in an urbanizing world.
