The role of cities in the sustainability transitions of their food systems cannot be undermined. As organizations with direct concerns about the food system at the local level, they can have a transformative impact at the global level. This is especially true in the wider contexts of global climate change, resource depletion, a burgeoning world population, competing food production systems, and diet-related public health concerns, new paradigms for urban and regional planning capable of supporting sustainable and equitable food systems are urgently needed.
