With the support of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, France Urbaine, in partnership with RESOLIS, decided to carry out a study entitled "Cities facing the challenges of food insecurity". This document gathers 21 contributions from metropolises, large cities and agglomerations, which make it possible to identify, through concrete initiatives, how they act against food insecurity.
 
The factsheet « A sustainable food supply for all policy » presents the agro ecology and food policy implemented by Montpellier Mediterranée Metropolis.  
Framed by the Montagne Noire and Cévennes mountain ranges, at the foot of this vast amphitheatre overlooking the Mediterranean sea, Montpellier Méditerranée Metropolis has established itself as an attractive European capital. However, more than 18% of the inhabitants are currently living below the poverty threshold, childhood obesity is increasing, especially in social priority districts and the issue of living together harmoniously is more of a challenge than ever. It is of crucial importance today that everyone has access to sufficient food and eats a balanced diet. 
 
Since 2015, the Montpellier Méditerranée Metropolis (3M) has undertaken a collaborative approach to the development of a proactive agro-ecological and food policy, based on five objectives:
 
•             facilitating access for all to a local, healthy food supply
•             supporting the agricultural and food sector economy and jobs
•             preserving the landscape heritage and natural resources
•             reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change
•             encouraging social cohesion.
