On 16 June 2015, CityLinks and RUAF Foundation organized the second webinar in the Urban Intersections series on Climate Change and Food Security. The team was joined by Rafael Tuts from UN-Habitat, Rubén Piacentini and Marcelo Tenaglia from the Municipality of Rosario, Argentina, Lauren Baker from the Toronto Food Policy Council, and Marielle Dubbeling from the RUAF foundation. Presentations examined how urban food security is tied to climate change.
The team discussed integrated planning and management strategies for urban food security and climate change adaptation; presented a project that integrates urban and peri-urban agriculture and forestry into city climate change strategies at work in Rosario, Argentina; and explored the context, history, and priorities that shape Toronto’s food policy.
