Urban population has already surpassed rural population and cities have an important role as agents of food systems positive transformation. For the human right to adequate food and nutrition to be guaranteed, it is necessary to include the perspective of urban dynamics in any solution devised to face food systems current challenge.
We believe that municipal governments and local organizations are indispensable actors in this ecosystem of transformation and it was from this conviction that LUPPA - Urban Laboratory of Public Food Policies was born.
LUPPA was conceived as a tool to support cities to achieve healthy food systems for people and the planet, resilient to climate and economic vulnerabilities, and promoters of social justice, based on the democratic construction of integrated and coherent policies that deal address urban food challenges systemically.
A public policy laboratory responds to the need to increase the number of Brazilian cities that develop strategic and multi-annual food policies. It also responds to the need to expand the sources of data and information on local food systems.
