Reducing Food Loss and Waste

Food waste is a challenge for sustainable and green growth. In order to manage the vast amount of food waste in the world today joint action by public and private actors is required. Based on the principle ‘what gets measured gets managed’ the World Resources Institute (WRI) and UNEP have partnered up to initiate the development of a Food Waste Protocol. The vision is that such a protocol can  engage both public and private actors in the efforts to reduce food losses and waste and provide invaluable information for sustainable green growth.

Session at 3GF2013

To this end 3GF 2013 featured a PPP session on Reducing Food Waste. The session launched a PPP to develop a global protocol for measuring and reporting food loss and waste to be used in both countries and corporate supply chains. The participants agreed to develop a practical guide for governments and businesses to reduce and prevent food waste in the supply chain, restaurants and households. Furthermore, they agreed to garner both private and public sector commitment to use the practical guide in protocol development.
