Estratègia d'alimentacio sostenible Barcelona 2030


Since 2016, Barcelona City Council has been promoting a food policy based on the principles of sustainable food, according to the Manual of Cities document and the commitments made with the signing of the Pact of Milan https://www.alimentaciosostenible.barcelona/en in October 2015.

The Pact of Milan is a treaty of cities that commit to promote sustainable, inclusive, resilient, safe and diversified agri-food systems, to ensure eating healthy and accessible to all people and with the aim of reducing food waste, preserving biodiversity and, at the same time, mitigating and adapting to the effects of the climate crisis.

After the definition and implementation of a first Food Policy Boosting Strategy 2016-2019, the Barcelona Sustainable Food Capital 2021 project is born. This project emerges in the context in which Barcelona becomes the host of the 7th Global Forum of Cities of the Milan Pact in 2021, and culminates with the development of a new 10-year strategy for the future: the Healthy and Sustainable Food Strategy 2030 and the creation of a space for governance and participation for its implementation, the City Agreement for the EASSB2030.

The promotion of a food transition in Barcelona is articulated around three main strategic axes:

Firstly, to promote healthy diets accessible to everyone (sustainable food is good for people). This includes the promotion of healthy, sustainable and accessible food in the population of Barcelona. And, at the same time, it allows us to advance towards the right to adequate food for all people in the city of Barcelona from a transformative perspective. The second axis consists of promoting local and sustainable economies (sustainable food is good for the territory). Finally, the third axis focuses on combating the climate emergency (sustainable food is good for the planet).
