Lobby and advocacy

RUAF advocates for inclusion of urban agriculture and city region food systems in city and international agendas by participating in international meetings, sharing examples of policies and projects, developing policy briefs and supporting cities with technical and policy advice and networking.

RUAF actively contributed to the implementation of the New Urban Agenda and the localisation of the SDG Agenda (specifically SDG Goal 11 on the Development of Sustainable Cities and Communities and SDG 2 on Ending Hunger) by facilitating cities to come together to exchange ideas, co-design projects and hold each other accountable in implementing food-focused solutions.
