SAVE FOOD, as one of the cooperative initiatives to what is known as the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action, is well represented at the 23rd annual session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 23) taking place from 6-17 November. During the Conference, FAO is showcasing its progress since COP21 and is highlighting how food loss and waste reduction can play an important role in accelerating global climate action. 

During the Agriculture Action Day of the Marrakesh Partnership for Global Climate Action, FAO facilitated dialogue on agricultural and food systems issues. A dedicated SAVE FOOD event showcased how responding to the food loss and waste challenge presents a cross-cutting opportunity to drive climate action forward by cutting GHG emissions and boosting resilience and productivity in food systems.

This event brought together key stakeholders, including youth, to discuss opportunities for reducing food loss and waste as part of the collective effort to enhance ambitions for climate action through the Marrakech Partnership while delivering SDG 12.3.

Ahead of COP23, FAO launched a new report on the interlinkages between food loss and waste and climate change: http://www.fao.org/3/a-i8000e.pdf
