Regional Food Systems and Sustainable Land Use in the Rural Urban Nexus

Regional Food Systems and Sustainable Land Use in the Rural Urban Nexus

Timeloc
11 April 2018
Berlin
Germany
The development of a regional food strategy offers many entry points for establishing and expanding sustainable relationships between urban areas and their rural hinterland.

The workshop "Regional Food Systems and Sustainable Land Use in the Rural Urban Nexus" on 11 April 2018 discussed the potential that food systems can play to improve rural urban linkages. The workshop aimed to discuss the available insights at international level about success factors of regional food policies and if these are also relevant in the German context. To do so, the workshop brought together local policy makers, federal policy makers as well as participants from research and civil society.  Stephanie Wunder, Senior Fellow at the Ecologic Institute and project leader of the Rural Urban Nexus project, presented success factors known from international examples and studies that promote rural urban linkages through regional food systems.

The workshop summary, agenda and participant list are now available at the RuralUrbanNexus project website.

The workshop was part of the project "Rural Urban Nexus - global sustainable land use and urbanisation" funded by the Federal Environment Agency.
