The Hungry City: Inclusive, healthy and resilient food systems for the Global South
The independent Swiss development organization Helvetas organizes an annual symposium for experts in development cooperation. Entitled "The Hungry City," the 2021 symposium focused on sustainable urban food systems in the global south. Taking the example of Mbeya in Tanzania international experts discussed entry points and measures for strengthening them to ensure food and nutrition security for all. The possible and expected contribution of the Swiss development community were part of the discussion. Download the program (PDF) here.
