TPFLW in Director-General report on FAO's work and engagement in the past 16 months

In his address to the 165th Session of the FAO Council today, the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), QU Dongyu, made a comprehensive report on the UN agency's work and engagement in the past 16 months, updating the Council on important activities and presenting new proposals and initiatives.

The Director-General referred to FAO's work on food loss and waste, referring to the unveiling of the Technical Platform on the Measurement and Reduction of Food Loss and Waste in July. The platform brings together information on measurement, reduction, policies, alliances, actions and examples of successful models applied to reduce food loss and waste across the globe.  

The platform is a gateway to all related FAO resources, including: the largest online collection of data on which food is lost and wasted and where; discussion forum on food loss reduction; examples of successful initiatives; e-learning courses; food loss and waste policy briefs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic; and tips on what everyone can do to reduce food waste.
