YieldWise: How the World Can Cut Food Waste and Loss by Half

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland,  YieldWise was formally launched, a $130 million initiative to demonstrate how the world can cut food waste and loss by half by 2030.

This is the next chapter of The Rockefeller Foundation’s agriculture and food security work, which has spanned more than a century and several continents—from seeding the Green Revolution that fed a billion people across Asia and South America in the 1950s and 60s, to the work of the Alliance for a Green Revolution for Africa (AGRA) (in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), over the last decade.
