The thirteenth edition of the Cities on the Frontline Series explored the challenges and opportunities towards developing resilient and equitable urban food systems. In the face of rapid urbanization and climate change, urban policymakers must urgently pursue food policies and investments that ensure steady and sustainable supplies of food products for urban residents, while preparing for challenges presented by disruptions such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
This month, we consider how social innovation for emergency response, transformation towards hybrid working and addressing core humanitarian issues can play a key role in the response and recovery from COVID-19.
