The Hungry Cities Partnership has published its report on the The Urban Food System of Cape Town, South Africa by Gareth Haysom, Jonathan Crush and Mary Caesar. As well as an overview of the demographic, economic and socio-political backgrounds of Cape Town, the report provides a systematic elaboration on the various aspects of this city’s urban food system. These include the sources of food and food flows, urban agriculture, food processing and retailing, as well as the level of household food security and its determinants. It highlights the contributions that the Hungry Cities Partnership household food security survey will make to the existing knowledge of Cape Town’s urban food system and beyond.
