The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in collaboration with the Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives, on Friday announced the inauguration of the My Food, My City exhibition to showcase the activities done by the project Support for Modelling, Planning and Improving Dhaka’s Food System. 

This initiative aims to foster inclusivity, resilience and sustainability in the urban food system of Dhaka division's four city corporations – Dhaka North, Dhaka South, Gazipur and Narayanganj, reads a press release.

The exhibition will be open to the public from December 8-16 at the Vasker Novera Gallery of the Bangla Academy, contributing to the larger framework offered by the Dhaka Food Agenda 2041, a project developed through action research, evidence-based analysis and a collaborative multi-stakeholder approach. 

This project aligns with national policies and priorities, representing a significant stride towards a more comprehensive and integrated urban food system.

Pedro Garzon Delvaux, project manager for the FAO, said: “Living in cities constantly changes the way we relate to food, even more so in an urban area like Dhaka which is evolving rapidly. 

“Thinking about this my food, my city relationship – and more so in an entertaining way – is something that can help us make better individual and collective choices today and in the future.” 

The My Food, My City exhibition features a curated set of displays, including maps, infographics and interactive games, all centred on the theme of healthier diets and future scenarios of Dhaka’s food systems. 

Running daily from 10am to 6pm, this exhibition seeks to rethink Dhaka’s urban food landscape. Visitors are invited to explore and engage with exhibits focusing on fresh food markets, supermarkets, diets, processed food and urban agriculture.
