CITY OF BORDEAUX
(2021)

Food resilience diagnosis

 

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

In partnership with VertigoLab, we carried out a diagnosis of the food resilience of the city of Bordeaux. The roadmap proposed to the elected officials should help strengthen the territory's ability to feed itself in the face of future crises.

Capture d’écran 2021-12-09 à 08.34.52.png

Between 1970 and 2018, in the context of a galloping urbanisation, the Grand Paris metropolis lost 72% of its agricultural land. The green belt that fed Paris until the beginning of the 20th century has now well and truly disappeared, although the beginnings of a new dynamic in favour of urban agriculture are emerging.

CITY OF MARSEILLE
(2021)

Food system sustainability assessment

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

The City of Marseille is a territory marked by strong socio-economic disparities and high rates of poverty. This situation leads to inequalities in access to a quality food supply according to income but also to its geographical location with certain areas overexposed to junk food and lacking in healthy food supply.

BORDEAUX MÉTROPOLE
(2021)

Food system sustainability assessment

 

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

The Bordeaux metropolis is expected to have one million inhabitants by 2030. The city wants to achieve 10% food self-sufficiency and increase the number of farmers by 30% to recreate a food belt.

MONTPELLIER MÉDITERRANÉE MÉTROPOLE
(2021)

Food system sustainability assessment

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

The metropolis of Montpellier attracts 4,000 newcomers every year: the pressure on the agricultural land of the metropolis and the Hérault department is increasing and the Mediterranean climate is intensifying.

GRENOBLE ALPES MÉTROPOLE
(2021)

Food system sustainability assessment

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Capture d’écran 2021-12-09 à 08.34.10.png

The Grenoble metropolis is located in the heart of a mountainous area subject to natural constraints that limit the development of a more diversified agriculture corresponding to the food needs of a growing consumer base.

NANTES MÉTROPOLE
(2021)

Food system sustainability assessment

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Nantes is located in the heart of a highly diversified agricultural territory. The specificity of its soils and the history of the territory have enabled it to develop typical crops but also to maintain extensive livestock farming. However, local agriculture is insufficient to meet local food needs.

GRAND LYON
(2021)

Diagnosis of food system sustainability

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

The Lyon metropolitan area is a dynamic territory that attracts newcomers every year. The area benefits from a large and diversified agricultural production, which is however threatened by the urban sprawl associated with the development of the city. How can we reconcile population growth, economic development and a sustainable local food system?

NEW AQUITAINE REGION
(2021)
Support the development of
sustainable and solidarity-based
food initiatives

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

We are collaborating with Vertigo Lab to identify practices with a high social and ecological utility in favor of a sustainable and solidarity-based food system in the New Aquitaine Region. The objective is to improve the efficiency of the current support systems of the New Aquitaine Region in response to the needs of project leaders.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Within the framework of the PROTEGE programme and in partnership with the New Caledonian consultancy firm Kahn & Associés, the Polynesian consultancy firm DAI Consulting and the Wallisian consultancy firm Fenu'Agri, we are assisting the 3 French PTOMs (French overseas territories) in the Pacific in their transition towards sustainable, resilient and supportive food systems. Dependence on imports, the explosion of junk food, inequitable distribution of value along the food chain... There are many issues at stake.
Different stages of work are planned within the framework of this study: diagnosis of the food system, impact analysis of local initiatives and co-construction of a strategic and operational framework for each territory.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Durban's food system is largely industrialised and monopolised by a few large farms, while millions of small-scale producers, almost exclusively black, are unable to access markets and services to develop their businesses. The rapid arrival of supermarkets coupled with the levels of extreme poverty also lead to worrying nutritional situations: high rates of obesity and undernutrition. These are issues to be discovered through the diagnosis and the videos produced.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

The food system in Valparaiso, Chile, faces many challenges: a neo-liberal economic model that favours national economic development at the expense of small local producers, low household purchasing power that makes access to healthy food difficult, and a strong legacy of the Pinochet dictatorship that still engenders a fear of change. Issues to be explored through the diagnosis and the films produced.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

The Iranian food system is facing several challenges, threatening the food security of its inhabitants and contributing to the depletion of resources: international economic sanctions leading to unprecedented inflation and price increases, water scarcity, and intensive and inappropriate farming practices. Some initiatives are emerging, but remain isolated.
