Abstract

According to various scholars, resilience (i.e., the capacity to adapt and evolve in unpredictable situations) implementation becomes most effective when it involves several civic institutions, agencies, and individual citizens working together toward common goals within a common strategy. Such networks can work together and weather unexpected crises as the current COVID-19 pandemic. Key aspects of this process are the development of a more integrated and holistic approach, meanwhile, the metropolitan resilience requires more collaboration across urban and rural boundaries. Food governance can help to promote resilience: since food system governance manifests the need to implement an integrated approach. Moreover, food system governance stimulates redefinition of the territorial scale and of the criteria for assessing resilience on such a scale. This paper provides a critical analysis of the above issues. Having experimented with food policies, integrated approaches, and redefinition of urban-rural relationships for several years, Portland proves to be a good vantage point for observing mechanisms relating to these issues.
