FoodCLIC strives to establish sustainable urban food environments building on the CLIC framework, a methodological foundation formed up by four pillars representing interrelated goals for transforming food systems. These pillars are: fostering sustainability co-benefits (social/health, economic, environmental); establishing linkages between urban and rural areas, as well as between land and water, to enhance rural-urban food systems; ensuring the inclusion of all food system stakeholders and actors; and establishing or reinforcing connectivities between food and other complex systems and policy areas.
