Abstract

FOODMETRES has combined quantitative and qualitative methods and engaged with a variety of actors in metropolitan regions including food producers, civic food organisations, and government bodies. FOODMETRES defines metropolitan regions in the context of the land use impacts of cities on their surrounding areas. It hence considers phenomena such as urban food consumption patterns, recreational behaviour and preferences, infrastructure and urbanisation processes as drivers that shape and define the surrounding metropolitan regions. Metropolitan regions are therefore dynamic in terms of size and character, and are not defined by sharp boundaries but soft transition zones. FOODMETRES has applied a spatial zoning concept for metropolitan regions that is based on the notion of regional food zones and urban recreational needs.
