High Level Meeting on "No more food to waste"

35 parties, including 16 ministers, and high level representatives of international organizations, NGO's, universities, international research organizations and international business participated in this meeting. During the meeting, the draft outcome and pitches for action were discussed. 3 thematic areas which are crucial to reduce food loss and food waste formed the heart of the discussion:
  • information gaps and data collection; 
  • actions at strategic level 
  • and actions on the ground (“best practices").
The conference is an important step towards active partnerships, new funding structures and effective policy models. Participants from more than 55 countries are working together these 4 days to find solutions to stop food waste and food losses.
