Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentationProfessional


Presentation webinar:International attention on the issue of food loss and waste is firmly reflected in the 2030 Agenda forSustainable Development. Specifically, Target 12.3 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), whichembody this agenda, calls for the halving by 2030 of per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and the reduction of food losses along production and supply chains, including postharvest losses. Many countries are already taking action to reduce food loss and waste, but the challenges ahead remain significant, and we need to step up efforts.Being a complex issue, food loss and waste prevention and reduction requires an integrated, holistic approach, with measures to be taken at each stage of the food supply chain and involving all key players from the public and private sectors.In this regard, FAO in Europe and Central Asia organizes a series of online talks – Impact Webinars –aimed to identify and promote good practices and inspire transformative interventions to prevent and reduce food loss and waste along the whole food supply chain.
