Planning for Food: The intersections of planning and food systems

Abstract [en]

The urban and regional planning practice and research field have for a long time ignored to pay attention to the food system. Recent research has shown the potential benefits for planners to work with food systems by using the food systems chain concept of “from farm tofork”. Here planners can filter traditional planning tasks such as land use planning, transportation planning, health and social planning through food.

The overarching aim with this case study is to analyze the intersections of food systems in planning through an interview based field study in Appleton Wisconsin (USA). A theoretical model is tested at estimating four planners involvement on a scale from “fragmented” to“comprehensive”.

One conclusion is that planners overall involvement in food systems is fragmented. The political “anti-planning” climate inWisconsin is here highlighted as a contextual factor for the limited attention to food systems in urban and regional planning.
