Technical Guidance

With rising populations, increasing demand for food, and greater pressures on our natural resources, reducing food loss and waste (FLW) is one of the most impactful ways to increase the food supply and the resilience of the food system.

This guide is a practical resource developed to educate stakeholders on how to integrate Food Loss and Waste reduction into agricultural value chain selection. It provides guidance on several FLW criteria including food loss, food waste, economic outcomes, food security and nutrition, climate vulnerability, carbon footprint, water footprint, land footprint, wildlife and biodiversity, gender, youth and socially excluded and marginalized communities, and FLW investment opportunity.
