The project supported Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Türkiye, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan in developing national strategies and action plans to prevent and reduce food loss and waste, targeting all actors along the food value chain, as well as consumers. Ahead of the implementation phase, the project promoted the sub-regional dialogue, mobilized actors both public and private, and worked to raise public awareness about the issue.

The presented outcomes and accomplishments shall inspire multi-disciplinary, solution-driven collaboration among public, private, and civil society actors at national and intra-regional level during the upcoming implementation of the national action plans.

The event is organised as part of the project Reduction of Food Loss and Waste in Azerbaijan, Central Asia, and Turkey, funded by the Government of Türkiye within the framework of the FAO–Türkiye Partnership Programme (FTPP-II) on Food and Agriculture.
