    Reviews. This important book is the first systematic study to compare and evaluate the wide range of paradigms underlying recent efforts to mitigate urban poverty, and makes an eloquent empirical and analytic case for the importance of poor urban communities in defining, catalyzing and implementing reducing urban poverty. This timely book takes a critical perspective to argue that urban poverty and health inequalities are intimately interconnected, and that the increasing disparity between rich and poor will necessarily exacerbate health issues within urban communities.

    This book argues that an examination of the food system and food security provides a valuable lens to interrogate urban poverty. Chapters examine the linkages between poverty, urban food systems and local governance with a focus on case studies from three smaller or secondary cities in Africa: Kisumu (Kenya), Kitwe (Zambia) and Epworth (Zimbabwe).

Urban Institute opens minds, shapes decisions, and offers solutions through economic and social policy research.
