Co-hosted by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), P4G Partnerships and WRAP, this event will build on UNEP’s Food Waste Index report to demonstrate that food waste is a global issue. It will make the case for greater funding of food waste prevention to governments and demonstrate how low and middle income countries in particular can leverage existing financial mechanisms to deliver food waste preventation strategies. This virtual event will be of interest to Ministries involved in Regional Food Waste Working Groups and representatives from other governments, with a particular focus on low and middle-income countries. It is also relevant for NGOs and Trusts and Foundations with an interest in food security and food poverty and food and drink businesses looking to decarbonise their supply chains to achieve Net Zero, and halve food waste to deliver Sustainable Development Goal 12.3. This event will help you to understand the scale and challenge in funding food waste initiatives, the current barriers to investing and the business case benefits of financial investment in food waste prevention.
