About Us

Eating City Platform

Eating City is a multi-year program of activities, launched in 2010, established by the Consortium Risteco, Terre Citoyenne, co-funded by the CLM foundation for Human Progress in Paris, and locally, for each of the different events, by other public and private partners. The aim of the program is to create opportunities of international meeting, to elaborate case studies and a series of publications with concrete proposals useful for public and private decision makers working upstream and downstream of the food chain and also for food industry and food service.

Theme of October 2016

Climate Chance : why food matters ?

Despite increasing awareness of climate change, our emissions of greenhouse gases continue on a relentless rise. Even if we stopped emitting all greenhouse gases today, global warming and climate change will continue to affect future generations. Among the main climate risks for human societies: reduced agricultural productivity, heightened water insecurity, increased exposure to extreme weather events, collapse of ecosystems and increased health risks, at least 4 of them will have an immediate impact on rank 2 “Zero Hunger” Millenium development goal.

The unprecedented scale of the Agreement obtained in Paris during COP21 makes it an important milestone to mobilize all the actors of the international community to keep human made global warming less than 2°C – and if possible less than 1,5 °C – in the horizon 2100. It reinforces the core importance of non state actors to find and implement solutions for climate and to meet the objectives of the period 2015-2020. It also open the doors for their participation to the reassessment of States’ indicative contributions in 2018.
