Food & the city economy: Tensions, trade-offs and opportunities

Infodiagram_contentsWe’ve just published our second report on food and the city economy, Tensions, trade-offs and opportunities. Its contents page replicated above.

We use two new thinking tools to aid decision-makers in Birmingham. We think the city can become a global leader in tackling the economic and social challenges within the food sector — but only with a radical change in decision-making which, among other concerns, recognises the full costs of promoting unhealthy diets.

For a quick skim-read,take a glance at the first four pages. You might find Annex A about Coca-Cola has useful background info too; this is also published as a separate paper here.

As any radical change in strategy takes time, we’ve also suggested tactical actions that can be taken now. These are summarised in Annex B.

Please do comment on it all below.
