Global Fora

The MUFPP Global Fora are international events, organized primarily by cities for cities, offering a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge, build partnerships and celebrate their progress in the implementation of their food policies through the Milan Pact Awards. Dialogue and technical exchange among signatories are enriched by the participation of relevant international organizations and institutions. Over the years, the MUFPP Global Fora have become a regular occurrence for cities and key actors in the global urban food agenda.
