OneNYC is a groundbreaking effort to address New York City’s long-term challenges: the forecast of 9 million residents by 2040, changing climate conditions, an evolving economy, and aging infrastructure.
Building on prior long-term sustainability plans for New York City, OneNYC charts a course for a sustainable and resilient city for all its residents, and addresses the profound social, economic, and environmental issues that we face. Through OneNYC, we pledge to keep the promise of opportunity that has made our city such a remarkable place for so many generations.
Food is integral to municipal infrastructure and intimately associated with public health, and economic and community development. OneNYC envisions a food system where more of our food comes from our region’s growers, producers, and manufacturers; and where our local food economy works for workers all along the supply chain. Initiatives and investments to strengthen our regional food system are aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from food shipped from far away; making our food system more resilient to climate change and other potential disasters; reducing the amount of food we send to landfills; and creating good food jobs locally and across the region.
