What is the role of cities in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations? What can policy makers, international organisations, business and civil society organisations do to successfully transform food systems?

These questions are explored in a new report by the Barilla Centre for Food and Nutrition (BCFN) and Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP). Fostering a territorial approach to food and involving multiple stakeholders is at the core of the solution. The report identifies key performance indicators to scale up and replicate the initiatives and to encourage dialogue among different stakeholders. Finally it explores the existing cities and networks, whether national, european or international, that are leading on this.

A chapter is also reserved to the role of EUROCITIES and the activities of the Working group on food. 

Policy recommendations of the report cover:
1. Governance
2. Assessment, Monitoring & Evaluation
3. Territorial Development
4. Natural Resources Management
5. Legislation
6. Awareness-Raising, Knowledge Management, and Education
7. City-to-City Networks
