Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)

Dear CFS Secretariat and Dear Contributors to the Urbanization, Rural Transformation and Implications for Food Security - Online consultation on the background document to the CFS Forum.

Please find below a contribution to the area of food loss and food waste prevention and reduction. The background document provided for this online consultation included food loss and waste in the Rural-Urban Dynamics and Implications for Food Security and Nutrition section.

The Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), G20, CFS, Habitat III, African Union, CELAC, EU and numerous National Governments have prioritized food loss prevention and reduction. Local, national, regional, and global actions should strengthen and facilitate harmonization of terminologies and definitions; data quality and availability; enable vertical and horizontal policy interventions and public-private-civil society networks for effective investments with short, medium, and long time returns for all actors, including end consumers in rural, peri-urban, and urban areas.

Concrete tools and policy recommendations to facilitate and enable prevention and reduction of food loss and food waste at local, national, regional and global level are mentioned in the attachment. The previous contribution has the same information. However, the format of the website modified the content structure and left out some content. Attached the compelte contribution.
