FAO launched its new Green Cities Initiative and Action Plan at a high-level virtual event to help transform agri-food systems, improve nutrition and end hunger in a post COVID-19 era.

Underlining the huge potential of cities in reducing the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on people’s health, FAO Director-General QU Dongyu encouraged all stakeholders to appreciate the vital role of cities in building back better and the urgency of innovative, comprehensive actions.

The new initiative also includes setting up a “Green Cities Network”, where cities of all sizes will exchange experiences on best practices, as well as build city-to-city cooperation opportunities.
