The Secondary Cities

As urbanization rates across the globe are rising, cities are gaining an increasingly important role in the global malnutrition crisis. Secondary cities in particular offer a recognized entry point for food system transformation. This is linked to the push to decentralise decision-making power to be closer to local communities for greater accountability. Local city governments can convene multiple sectors to enhance resilience to food security shocks, help ensure adequate diets, inclusively for the more vulnerable city populations, and respond to the growing burden of non-communicable disease.
