City Food Forest

Focus: Mitigation
Sector(s): Education / Social & governance innovation, Food security / Urban agriculture

To increase food security and contribute to the greening of the city, Taichung is building a “food forest” in the urban area. The city government will select suitable public land for citizens to farm fruits and vegetables, and will conduct workshops to teach communities how to engage. The harvested produce will help increase the food security of the communities, while the greening of the city land will help to reduce air pollution and mitigate the urban heat island effect. In addition, the project will raise awareness of the potential of sustainability projects among citizens.
