Student working on a research project.

Planning For Regenerative, Equitable Food Systems In Urbanizing Global Environments Consortium (Plan-REFUGE)

Students interested in creating equitable food systems in the Global South can apply to work on this project in the Food Systems Planning and Healthy Communities lab. Plan-REFUGE aspires to understand and mitigate food inequities experienced by small-holder farmers in the Global South. Using a transdisciplinary approach we investigate how small-holder farmers in the Global South adapt their daily living practices in the face of a number of challenges including globalization and climate change. Lessons from on-the-ground experiences are used to inform purposeful community development and planning strategies. The project ensures a Global South to Global South learning exchange as well as capacity building of policy makers both locally and globally through publications and trainings.
