SAVE FOOD: Global Initiative on Food Loss and Waste Reduction

Regional Symposium on Sustainable Food Systems for Healthy Eating

5 - 7 September 2017
San Salvador, El Salvador

Dialogue and consultation mechanisms have agreed that it is required  a fundamental change in order to strengthen, preserve or recover food systems that guarantee sustainability and the capacity to provide nutritious meals affordable to everyone; incorporating an integrated perspective ranging from the conservation of ecosystems through the more efficient and sustainable use of land and natural resources, improving the techniques used for the production, storage, transformation, processing marketing and commercialization of food, up to the management of food losses and waste and the empowerment of responsible consumers as a prime force in the food system. The Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Symposium will be held from 5 to 7 September 2017 and offers the opportunity to consider the challenges and opportunities in shaping sustainable food systems that assure everyone the human right to adequate and healthy food.
