Exploring creative new approaches to combat food loss and waste

Food loss and waste is a huge global problem found everywhere along the chain from producer to consumer, and a key focus of UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12, whose Target 12.3 aims to halve per capita food losses by 2030.

On March 12, IFPRI partnered with Stop Wasting Food (the organization founded by Danish activist Selina Juul), the World Resources Institute (WRI)Champions 12.3, and the Embassy of Denmark in Washington to host an event, Reducing Food Loss and Waste – Making it Personal, that explored the challenges of this issue and showcased innovative solutions from the private and public sectors.
