The funds will support between the involvement of RUAF at key urban stakeholder meetings and the production of publications and outreach material to promote the WLE agenda and impact pathway of the RUL Flagship . They will also be used to support cities in uptake and implementation fo the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFFP). The latter will be specifically implemented in Quito (Ecuador) to support them in the development of a vulnerability analysis of their food system. It will also involve the participation in a regional meeting in Cali (Colombia) that seeks to strenghten capacities of participants from 5-6 cities in this area. Work in 2018 will also involve targetted support to other cities participating in the ICLEI-RUAF CITYFOOD network in uptake of the MUFFP.
