The Hungry Cities Partnership (HCP), the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the Queen Elizabeth Scholars (QES-AS) Program are hosting a conference on Urbanization, Food Systems and Sustainability in the Global South on 3-4 July 2018 at the Balsillie School in Waterloo, Ontario, funded by SSHRC, the BSIA, WLU and the IDRC. The primary objective of the first day of the conference is to address the challenges posed by rapid urbanization and the transformation of food systems in the cities of the Global South and relate both to the goals and targets of the 2030 Sustainable Development agenda and the New Urban Agenda of Habitat III. The second day of the conference is devoted to the increasingly important informal food sector in cities of the Global South, and features a series of presentations of original research by QES-AS scholars and others.
Registration for the conference is free. Please make sure you register for both of the two days, unless you only want to attend one day. Please register as soon as possible with the following link:
