Issues of policy and governance are key to building more sustainable food systems at the municipal, regional, national and international scales.The FLEdGE Innovative Governance Working Group is focused on examining food policy.
For example, we are looking at:
- Existing models and good practices in national food policy
- The UN-FAO Committee on World Food Security, particularly its Civil Society Mechanism
- Examining potential applicability of municipal scale initiatives (e.g. Food Policy Councils) at larger (e.g. national) scales.
