"Signed in October 2015, the Milan Pact is an initiative driven by representatives of local communities around the world for fighting for more equitable, resilient and sustainable territorial food systems. As of September 2017, it counts 148 cities as signatories, including Brussels, Bruges, Gand and, most recently, Liège. The Milan Pact reaffirms the roles and responsibilities of local communities in the realisation of food and nutritional rights and focuses on the areas of governance, social and economic equality, sustainable diets and nutrition, production, supply and distribution, and food loss and waste. The Milan Pact particularly encourages direct participation between civil society and small producers in decision making across Food Policy Councils." (
