Toelichting (Engels) Urban food systems are at great risk from shocks, such as hurricanes that wipe out stores in a matter of hours, and stresses, like drought that depletes a region’s crops over years. Therefore, the food system should be an important part of disaster preparedness and urban resilience planning. Expanding urban agriculture is one way to support resilience. But to ensure food security for an urban population in the face of disruptions requires looking beyond production. Resilience planning requires an understanding of how to support the whole food system from farm to plate, and a consideration of how to make sure the food available after disasters is also healthy and accessible for urban residents.
