The Consuming Urban Poverty project is one of a series of food-related projects hosted by the African Centre for Cities (ACC) a leading knowledge centre conducting meaningful research on how to understand, recast and address pressing urban crises, particularly on the African continent.
Since most urban challenges such as food security, climate change adaptation, economic inclusion and cultural vitality are inherently interdisciplinary and spatially layered, ACC nurtures the co-production of knowledge favouring and cultivating critical perspectives from, and of, the global south. Through its research, ACC aims to contribute to imaginative policy discourses and practices to promote vibrant, just and sustainable cities.
