On 19-21 October 2017, the 3rd Annual Gathering and Mayors' Summit of the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP) will be held in Valencia, Spain.
Representatives from the MUFPP signatory cities will exchange information on the progress made towards implementing sustainable food policies in their cities. Mayors and experts will discuss how to meet the challenges, such as climate change, public policies and healthy diets, sustainable urban food systems and sustainable cities.
Those cities which were awarded in 2016 will present the results of their policies, and the recipients of the 2017 Milan Pact Awards will receive their prizes.
In conjunction with the Mayor Summit, FAO and RUAF Foundation will host the closing event of their joint programme on assessing and planning sustainable city region food systems (CRFS). The event will bring together food policy makers from cities around the world, key experts on urban and regional food policies and representatives from international organizations.
