Abstract

While urban food insecurity has increased to record levels in the Global South, it tends to be overlooked among academics, policymakers, and urban managers. Very often, national food security policies overemphasize rural food insecurity, and urban managers tend to focus on other urban crises, even though they are often interrelated with food insecurity.
