UB Food Lab, UN FAO to lead training session at United Nations conference in Ecuador

The University at Buffalo Food Systems Planning and Healthy Communities Lab (Food Lab) has partnered with the United Nation Food and Agriculture Organization to lead a training session on food systems planning and policy at the upcoming Habitat III Conference in Quito, Ecuador next week.

The workshop, titled Planning for Food Systems in Urban Settlements: Learning from North America, will focus on planning tools that strengthen the capacity of local governments in supporting food security and agricultural viability, as well as information and strategies for how the New Urban Agenda can be implemented. The session will provide participants with information on community-led food systems planning techniques that have been used successfully in North America, particularly Buffalo and Seattle.

The workshop will be on Sunday, October 16, 2016, from 14:30 – 16:00 in Room B, One UN Pavilion.
