Technical Platform on the Measurement and Reduction of Food Loss and Waste

UN Food Systems Summit concluded in New York

FAO Director-General QU Dongyu made the pledge at the closing segment of the UN Food Systems Summit, "Carrying forward the vision and momentum for 2030," where he delivered the Summit's closing statement. The landmark event adopted, for the first time, a comprehensive approach towards agri-food systems transformation, in order to fight poverty and hunger, reduce inequalities and preserve the environment (more details here).

In New York, during the UN Food Systems Summit all commitments to action were disclosed, and the "Food is Never Waste Coalition" was launched.

A video describes the rationale and aims of this new Coalition.
