Part of a program that lasts for one year and delivers a report on the development of the food strategies in cities, the meeting involved representatives from 26 municipalities

More than 140 people met in São Paulo at the beginning of February for the second edition of the LUPPA LAB (Laboratory of Public and Food Policies). This is a space that brings together representatives from several Brazilian municipalities to work on the building of an integrated agenda of SAN (Food and Nutritional Security) and climate in their cities. In all, 26 cities participated in the meeting, in addition to experts in the field of food policies, government officials, and partners and supporters of LUPPA, such as representatives from the São Paulo City Hall, the Ministry of Development and Social Assistance and the Ministry of International Relations.

LUPPA LAB is part of a program that lasts for one year and delivers an extended report of tools so that cities can become capable of developing their own food strategies. The immersion involved systemic thinking, extended collaboration, intersectorality and the development of action plans that highlight paths for the building of SAN strategies, supported by the experience of Reos Partners.

iCS is one of the partners of the initiative. The following cities were at the LAB:
