Improving urban nutrition in Africa and Asia through policy change

This brief makes the case for cities to increase their focus on policies and practices that improve the consumption of safe and nutritious food. Urbanisation contributes to shifts in lifestyle, consumption patterns and economic activities, which may lead to adverse outcomes in poor diet and nutrition. It highlights multi-stakeholder alliances, especially with the private sector as key to improve the governance of nutrition. 

As part of its Urban Governance for Nutrition program, GAIN is focusing its efforts on two cities: Surabaya City in East Java, Indonesia and a city in Tanzania.
