SAVE FOOD: Global Initiative on Food Loss and Waste Reduction

Community of Practice on Food Loss Reduction

RBA Joint Project Information Package

 The “Mainstreaming food loss reduction initiatives for smallholders in food deficit areas” project, implemented by the Rome-Based UN Agencies (RBA) FAO, IFAD, and WFP, funded by the Government of Switzerland aims to improve food security and income generation opportunities through reduction of food losses in supported food grains and pulses value chains. 

 

During its Phase 1 (2014-2017) the following information material have been developed to disseminate results, knowledge and good practices:

  • Project brochure to illustrate and guide on the rational of the project
  • Community of Practice on food loss reduction flyer to explain how the CoP serves as a convener of knowledge and experience and for networking between different actors and institutions
  • Country-based Food Loss Analysis results a two pager document which aims at sharing the methodology applied and results achieved in identifying critical loss points along selected value chains and recommended solutions (Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda)
  • Infographic that illustrates the different steps along the studied value grain chains by food loss causes and recommended solutions, as a tool to support training and dissemination of good practice at field level
