Gaps Analysis & Improved Methods for Assessing Post-Harvest Losses.


In line with the current policy debate on agriculture and rural development, the improvement of methods for estimating post-harvest losses was identified by FAO member countries as a priority research topic to be included in the Research Programme of the Global Strategy to Improve Agriculture and Rural Statistics (GS). The objective of this research is to develop cost-effective statistical methods for measuring post-harvest losses. This research has been undertaken by an international senior consultant, Mr. Mbaye Kebe, under the supervision and with the support of statisticians of the Global Office.
