Success or Crisis in 2030? The Fight to Halve Food Loss and Waste

Can the world achieve all it needs to in order to halve food loss and waste by 2030? Or in a decade’s time will we face an insurmountable mountain of food wasted between farms and people’s plates – and the resulting social, environmental and economic consequences?

This Champions 12.3 event offered a candid look at food loss and waste around the world, from farms to business supply chains to household kitchens -- including shining a light on reasons for hope, even as the pandemic reveals deep problems in the food system. It also laid out an urgent call for bigger and bolder action.
