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 “Encouraging local agricultural sectors for a healthy, accessible food supply” outlines The Projet Alimentaire Métroplitain (Metropolitan Food Project) of Caen Normandy metropolitan hub.
The Caen territory lies between land and sea, at the intersection of an agglomeration with a high level of services and land that is almost exclusively devoted to farming. The grain plateau coexists with cattle and horse farms while traditional market gardening activities tend to occupy the area behind the coastline. The historical and natural heritage takes the form of a network of towns and villages structured around the Orne river. Today, these geographical features allow a diversifica-tion of agricultural sectors with the close involvement of farmers, public authorities and associations in food issues.
 
The Caen Normandy Metropolis Projet alimentaire territorial (PAT) (“territorial food project”, a French initiative to reinforce local agriculture) has highlighted the territory’s response to the population’s requirements in terms of good quality locally produced food. Local authorities are now involved in the structuring of new economic sectors, that are very promising in terms of local jobs and immediate benefits for inhabitants.
