With many challenges threatening global food and nutrition security, we recognise the urgency to accelerate actions in the development of sustainable, resilient and equitable agri-food systems. In July 2021, Rikolto joined the RUAF Global partnership with the aim to increase our impact on transforming food systems and support each other to achieve common goals.
The RUAF Global Partnership brings together cities, research institutions and NGOs promoting inclusive and resilient urban food systems, guided by 3 underlying principles: the universal right to food, sustainable & resilient cities, and multi-stakeholder engagement.
Its members are committed to 3 strategic goals:
- Promoting localised systems of production and consumption for more inclusive food systems
- Strengthening the resilience of urban food systems
- Strengthening the role of cities in food policy governance
