Our work

Every five years the RUAF Global Partnership reviews its strategy. For the period 2018-2023, the overarching strategy of the RUAF Global Partnership is to support and promote knowledge exchanges between cities and towns on specific issues of sustainable food systems.

Driven by three principles, namely the universal right to food, sustainable and resilient cities, and multi-stakeholder engagement, the partnership aims to:

  1. Promote localised systems of production and consumption for more inclusive food systems
  2. Strengthen the resilience of urban food systems
  3. Strengthen the role of cities in food policy governance

RUAF projects and activities aim to contribute to increasing access to food, ensuring productive livelihoods and promoting resilient development, and advancing the New Urban Agenda (NUA) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
