Global Perspectives on Wasted Food
Start Date: 1/20/2022Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 1/20/2022End Time: 10:30 AM

Event Description
Over 30 percent of all food produced globally goes to waste, and food waste accounts for six percent of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. Preventing and minimizing food waste can have multiple benefits: social, environmental, economic and public health. In this session, we will hear from colleagues around the world who will address how food waste is manifested in various regions, interventions in place and the impact of wasted food on climate and population health. Global panelists will address the following questions:

  1. How is wasted food manifested in your region? What are some of the contributing factors to this food waste?
  2. What is being done in your region to address food waste?
  3. What is the influence of wasted food on climate and population health in your region?
