dc.descriptionBy the end of the century, half the world's population will live in cities, so the need to improve the conditions of life of the urban poor is becoming increasingly urgent. A specific problem for poor city-dwellers, which to date has been under-researched, is that of providing sufficient food for themselves and their children. Cities of Hunger, an important contribution to nutrition studies, focuses on the causes of urban malnutrition and adopts an innovative way of analysing these in terms of the social level - individual, family, community, national/international - at which they operate.en_US
