Among its 6 commissions covering competences based on policy areas of the EU Treaties there is also the Commission for Natural Resources (NAT) that coordinates the CoR’s work on consumer protection and food production, among others.

The Global Initiative on Food Loss and Waste Reduction works in collaboration and partnership with the public sector, the private sector and with the civil society at local, sub-national, national, regional, and global level for policy development, research, and identification and implementation of solutions.
