Hungry Cities Partnership Discussion Paper No. 11 on Urban Food Security and Rural Bias is Published
The Hungry Cities Partnership Discussion Paper No. 11, Urban Food Security and Rural Bias, was posted to the Hungry Cities website. It is coauthored by Jonathan Crush and Liam Riley. The paper sets out the global, African, and South African contexts within which both urban development and food security agendas in Africa are framed. It argues that the pervasive rural bias and anti-urbanism identified in the international and regional food security agendas in the first decade of the 21st century have persisted into the second. It calls for continued research and advocacy efforts to put food onto urban policy agenda at the local level.
