Reducing Food Loss and Waste: Setting a Global Action Agenda
This report lays out a Global Action Agenda for reducing the rate of food loss and waste and thereby achieving SDG 12.3. The action agenda includes a Target-Measure-Act approach, an actor-specific “to-do” list, and 10 “scaling interventions” designed to take the approach and to-do list to scale. The Global Action Agenda is designed to guide businesses, governments, civil society, and other actors in the food supply chain who can play a role in tackling food loss and waste, individually and collectively. This report was jointly prepared by WRI with support from The Rockefeller Foundation, and in collaboration with food loss and waste experts from the Consortium for Innovation in Postharvest Loss and Food Waste Reduction, Iowa State University, the University of Maryland, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Wageningen University & Research, the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP), and the World Bank.
