Poverty and malnutrition hotspots are moving from rural to urban communities, as Africa is urbanizing. The population in cities and countries are faced with the coexistence of overweight, obesity, micronutrient deficiency and undernourishment, the so-called ‘triple’ burden of malnutrition. The question on Who is affected and Why are they affected remains unclear. The project ‘NOURICITY’ sought to answer these questions by engaging in a chain of multi-stakeholder participatory events and fieldwork meant to deliver a blueprint for partnerships seeking to improve urban nutrition in Africa. The project aimed to improve urban nutrition in Uganda by bridging knowledge gaps about its systemic and individual drivers and by developing partnerships for improved nutrition in urban areas.
