The 8th Global Forum of the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP) will be held in Rio de Janeiro between October 17th and 19th, 2022. The event will convene under the theme Food to feed the climate justice – how cities can find solutions through urban food policies and will be an excellent opportunity to connect, exchange experiences, challenges, knowledge, and best practices, to inspire and get inspired with the shared goal of fixing our urban food systems while addressing the climate emergency.
EAT and the Food Trails project will co-host the side event “Sustainable, healthy, and just food procurement for people and planet”, which will be held on 18 October, 2022, from 2:30 to 4:00 pm (local time).
What factors and approaches can support the procurement of food that is healthy, environmentally sustainable, and socially just? How can food in cities support farmers and producers in surrounding areas? How can publicly purchased food serve as a tool to improve food consumption more broadly?
This session explores procurement policies and practices that enable the uptake of healthy sustainable diets, with an emphasis on justice and livelihood. Examples from a diversity of cities will be highlighted, followed by a discussion about overcoming barriers and scaling up the influence of public procurement. An interactive element will source questions and input from the audience.
