- Sustainable Food System
A third of the world's entire food supply could be saved by reducing waste – that’s enough to feed 3 billion people! It is inescapable that achieving sustainability will require better food waste management. The world has already set ambitious goals to make this a reality: the 2030 Agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals, states that the globe should halve per capita food waste at the retail and consumer levels. (SDG 12.3). Granted, a 50% reduction in food waste is no easy feat. The good news is that it isn’t impossible either.
This is the reason behind the webinar organized by the SFS Programme, which took participants on a journey to see what is happening in the fight on food waste across the globe? Four countries who are actively working to combat food waste provided overviews on what food waste looks like within their borders and on what they they are doing to address this challenge.A total of 100 participants joined to hear Brazil, Colombia, the Netherlands and the United States of America share their food waste policies, success factors and main challenges. The webinar also featured a presentation on the Sustainable Food Systems Programme’s core initiative "Delivering SDG 12.3",
which is aimed at providing technical and policy support to countries in their fight against food loss and waste. Presentations were followed by a Q&A exchange.
