|The development of Food Belts of different kinds around an increasing number of cities (e.g. in Belgium, France and Canada) relates to the increasing importance given to local foodstuffs by several segments of the market for foodstuffs. How to put in place a Food Belt? There are several options and the introduction to this workshop will outline several of them. But the focus of the workshop will be on how to use a process known as strategic development planning involving farmers, social organizations and groups of citizens. The potential steps in this process will be presented and then the participants in the workshop will be asked to respond to a set of fundamental questions (in small groups of 5 to 6 participants) about the surroundings of one of the cities that they know where a Food Belt has yet to be put in place. The conclusions will of the different groups will be shared and a set of conclusions about how to start the strategic planning process for a Food Belt will be developed.|
