Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation is a specialized organization that manages to defeat hunger by concentrating the joint efforts of the member countries.

With the progress of urbanization, the food supply structure has witnessed significant changes.

A sustainable food system which incorporates all the stages of food supply has been given priority. How to concretely practice the Framework of Urban Food Agenda is open to discussion.

However, the agricultural production is complaint to be unstable as it is subject to a variety of unpredictable factors such as climates. The resilience of agricultural production is essential to sustainable food supply. A steady supply guarantees steady price and demand and, in turn, generates sustainability.
