Taking stock - Uganda Food Change Lab: planning for a sustainable food system in the face of rapid urbanisation
This document, published in October 2018, describes Hivos and IIED’s Food Change Lab in Fort Portal, Uganda, where the aim was ‘planning for a sustainable food system in the face of rapid urbanisation.’ A food change lab is, in essence, a multi-stakeholder platform with the purpose of supporting innovative problem-solving and policymaking around sustainable food and diets. The document is organised into the following sections: story of the food change lab, the process, prototypes, results and the way forward, and lessons learned. As well as learning how to structure and conduct a food change lab, readers gain access to a number of resources to better understand the food change lab methodology.
Through citizen action, IIED and Hivos are promoting diets that are diverse, greener, healthier, fairer and more sustainable.
