Between March and August 2019, three journalists from the digital platform Eos Tracé visited partner cities of Rikolto's Food Smart Cities programme. During these visits, they interviewed more than 130 people and discovered initiatives that make safer, healthier and more sustainable food accessible to citizens. This book tells their stories from 9 cities in Vietnam, Belgium, Tanzania, Indonesia, Ecuador, Honduras and Nicaragua.

With this publication, our hope is to inspire more cities and actors to start initiatives to improve the quality and sustainability of food. Such a transformation isn’t easy, as the stories in this book demonstrate. There is no such thing as a standard approach for all cities. Customisation is key. Moving towards sustainable and inclusive food systems is not a linear process and it may even feel like there is no end to the obstacles along the way.
The make-or-break factor will be our ability to learn and to adapt in complex environments. Through trial and error, today’s changemakers are paving the way for the next generation to ensure that healthy and sustainable food is accessible to everyone, now and in the future.
We hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as we enjoyed writing about them.
