Local actions transforming our world

EUROPE – Ghent’s work in transforming local food systems is included in a new publication which showcases ways to localise the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Produced by ICLEI, the City of Aalborg and the Basque Country, the guide presents examples of how the ‘15 pathways of the Basque Declaration can be used to implement the SDGs at the local level’.

In the case of Ghent, it has been cited for progressing actions including ‘redistributing surplus food destined for waste to people in need through the Foodsavers platform, and investing in agricultural land for local food production’.
