Milan Urban Food Policy Pact
More than 50% of the world’s population currently lives in urban areas, a proportion that is projected to increase to almost 70% by 2050.
In 2014, the Mayor of Milan decided to launch an international protocol aimed at tackling food-related issues at the urban level, to be adopted by as many world cities as possible. The Milan Urban Food Policy Pact was signed on the 15 October 2015 in Milan by more than 100 cities. It represents one of the most important legacies of Milan EXPO 2015.
The Milan Urban Food Policy Pact is an international agreement of Mayors. It is more than a declaration, it is a concrete working tool for cities. It is composed by a preamble and a Framework for Action listing 37 recommended actions, clustered in 6 categories. For each recommended action there are specific indicators to monitor progresses in implementing the Pact. The Milan Pact Awards offer concrete examples of the food policies that cities are implementing in each of the 6 Pact categories.
Slow Food supports and collaborates with the signatories of this agreement. In particular, the FoodTrails project is rooted in theMilan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP).
