The Partnership

The Hungry Cities Partnership (HCP) is an international network of partner organizations which focuses on the relationships between rapid urbanization, urban food systems and migration in the Global South.

The HCP conducts collaborative research, training and advocacy with the objective of providing innovative solutions to the challenge of building sustainable cities and policies and programs that promote food security in migrant origin and destination communities and corridors.

Between 2014 and 2020, HCP operated in China, India, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico, Mozambique and South Africa and was funded by the International Partnerships for Sustainable Societies (IPaSS) program of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). In 2021, HCP was awarded a SSHRC Partnership Grant for a new seven-year project entitled South-South Migration and Migrant Food Security in the Global South (the MiFOOD Project). New HCP partner countries include Ecuador, Ghana, Namibia, Qatar and Singapore. New international partners include the FAO, IFPRI, ILO, IOM, MIDEQ and SDSN.
