|Invitation to Answer COVID-19 Survey on Local Food Systems
|21 April 2020
The Office of the Representative in the Philippines of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has an online survey on responses of cities and municipalities to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) crisis, particularly in relation to the local food systems. It wants to raise the profile of actions by local governments to provide support to them.
Specifically, the initiative aims to map the actions taken, identify challenges that local governments face, and give opportunity to make recommendations on how the response could be better managed. You may click the link below to access the questionnaire:
Should you be willing to share further details (videos, photos, documents, hyperlinks, etc.) about the measures undertaken to face the effects of the COVID-19 emergency on the food system, you may do so by sending an email with the following subject line “FAO COVID19 INFORMATION - [YOURCITY/MUNICIPALITY]” to the following email address: Urban-Food-Actions@fao.org, with copy to FAO-PH@fao.org.
Kindly take note that the deadline for submitting the response is on Sunday, 26 April 2020. For questions, you may contact Urban-Food-Actions@fao.org, with copy to FAO-PH@fao.org.
