Fondation Nicolas Hulot (FNH), the International Urban Food Network (IUFN) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) are launching the Climate Change Urban Food Initiative. The initiative focusses on the links between sustainable food, sustainable urban development and the various methodologies that can be used to respond to sustainable urban food systems in a world facing severe change in climate. The Initiative is open to the following:
-The international community (decision makers, NGOs, researcher, citizens) that work on climate change and urban food systems,
-Local authorities participating in COP21,
-and the general public
The sharing of solutions and different mechanisms will be presented through four webinars and two short movies based on the facts around the realities of climate change and urban food systems. A Joint IUFN-FNH-UNEP Policy Perspectives Paper will be put together to be presented to local and national decision-makers present at COP21 in Paris for a united understanding of sustainable food systems.
The four webinars will feature international experts and practitioners who will focus on the importance of climate change and food at a local level. The webinars will be available in French and English, for more information on the times and registration please visit the IUFN website. The first webinar is scheduled for the 21st of October 2015.
