Moving Forward on Food Loss and Waste Reduction

October 29, 2019 • 9:00 – 10:30 am EDT
One of the cruelest paradoxes of our time is that as world hunger increases, a significant amount of food is either lost or wasted. Successfully reducing food loss and waste would make a substantial contribution to decreasing global hunger and malnutrition. We all have a part to play, not only for the resources that go into producing food, but also, and more importantly, for the 821 million who go to bed hungry every night.

Join us for a technical discussion on the key findings of FAO’s State of Food and Agriculture Report 2019: Moving Forward on Food Loss and Waste Reduction, which was released this week. Listen to distinguished experts explore how food loss and waste reduction can significantly improve global food and nutrition security, promote environmental sustainability, and lower agricultural production costs.

This dialogue is part of the joint CSIS Global Food Security Project and FAO of the United Nations, Liaison Office for North America speaker series on agricultural development.
