Recipe book on urban food challenges

RUAF documented 24 case studies on urban food policy in the Netherlands (in Dutch). The so-called "recipe book" is a result of the City Deal Food on the Urban Agenda an initiative of 12 municipalities, the province of Gelderland and 3 national Ministries.

Each case deals with a specific problem in the food system. Four themes are central: strengthening food chains in and around the city; healthy food and social inclusiveness; ecological and economical sustainability and innovation; and governance innovation. Together the case studies show how integrated food policy can be put into practice.
