Localizing the SDGs through
an urban food lens

June 17, 2021 | By More

The Hungry Cities Partnership hosted a workshop with ICLEI Africa on Localising the SDGS through an Urban Food Lens in the Global South. There are growing efforts to localize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which acknowledge the vital role of local government and urban actors in driving sustainability. These efforts are supported by an intuitive understanding of the interrelation between each of the SDGs, yet the integration of the SDGs is not as clearly articulated by the underlying SDG targets and indicators.

Participants offered global reflections on SDG localization efforts and proposed that food offers a useful lens for approaching sustainability in a holistic manner. The workshop then turned its focus to the learnings emanating from many global South cities engaged in the Hungry Cities project.
