Africa’s urban food and nutrition transition – A call to action (Oct 2016) –  Proposed by CUP, Hungry Cities and AFSUN. Following the World Nutrition Conference and the development of the Call to Action document, we worked through the comments and made the suggested changes and additions. We then uploaded the document to the Moving on Empty website and solicited responses and feedback. Through this process the document was read by over 4000 people with different responses and comments. These have all be incorporated into the final document.
