We have committed to four actions and six indicators under the “Sustainable food” goal.
Each action has a set of indicators — with clear, concrete and measurable targets — to evaluate success. The status of each are as reported in the 2020-2021 annual report.
8.1 Create a campaign to promote local food production on NCC-managed lands.

8.2 Create a food strategy for urban lands to complement the Sustainable Agriculture and Food Strategy.
|Complete a food strategy|
|Establish five new partnerships to help us carry out the urban food strategy|
8.3 Improve the conservation and quality of soil and water resources.
|Launch five pilot or research projects to gather data about soil health and quality|
8.4 Diversify and increase food production on Greenbelt farmlands.
|Complete an assessment of the food produced on NCC-managed lands (type, quality and quantity, currently and in the future)|
|Convert at least 200 hectares of existing Greenbelt farmlands for food production|
