In this episode of the Perspective Prog. Based on ‘Food Loss & Waste’. The International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste (IDAFLW) is being observed for the third time on 29 September 2022 with the theme ‘Stop Food Loss and Waste! For People and Planet.’ This day assumes huge importance due to the rising food insecurity across the globe. According to the United Nations Environment Programme, an estimated 14 percent of the world’s food is lost between harvest and retail. Moreover, an estimated 17 per cent is wasted in retail and at the consumption level. This food loss and waste accounts for 8-10 per cent of the total global greenhouse gas emissions. Food loss and waste undermine the sustainability of our food systems thus making them less resilient. So what should be done to tackle this challenge?
