Urban Food Security

The question of food security is a particular concern for urban populations as almost half of the world's population now resides in cities. Ensuring safe and affordable food for urban populations is a real challenge even for advanced industrial economies, and even worse for developing countries where resources are limited and poverty rates exceed 50 percent. This course will examine the unique challenges of creating food security in urban areas.
