About

By 2050, global food systems will need to sustainably and nutritiously feed nearly 10 billion people, and 80 percent of the world’s food will be consumed within urban areas. The challenge to ensure that everyone in the world can feed themselves has become intertwined with concerns around which foods we are consuming, where we are eating them, and how they are grown, processed, and delivered. Further, as food systems contribute to the increasing incidences of non-communicable and food-borne diseases and represent one of the world’s largest employers and primary drivers of climate change, these issues have far-reaching consequences on people’s nutrition and health, the potential to create viable jobs and livelihoods, and the future sustainability of our planet.

To do so, the Mohammed bin Rashid Initiative for Global Prosperity is seeking applications from innovators and makers around the world that will:

  • Provide equitable and affordable access to healthy, low carbon food in cities
  • Create more efficient supply chains and reduce food loss and waste
  • Reduce hunger, malnutrition, and food related illnesses in urban areas
