  12. 12. PROPOSAL: A REGIONAL STRATEGY FOR REDUCTION OF FOOD LOSSES AND WASTE
  13. 13. PILLARS OF THE STRATEGY PROPOSAL IN LAC: NEXT STEPS RESEARCH TECHNOLOGY AND KNOWLEDGE INFORMATION/ COMMUNICATION GOVERNANCE EMPIRICAL DATA TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION AWARENESS RAISING NETWORKS PUBLIC AND PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP DIALOGUE NETWORKS  STUDIES ON LOSSES AND WASTE IN SELECTED AGRIFOOD CHAINS, WITH ENFHASIS IN BASIC FOOD BASKET (FRUITS, VEGETABLES, FISH)  METHODOLOGIES TO QUANTIFY LOSSES AND WASTE IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN (RETAIL, POSTHARVEST, ETC)  REGIONAL CONSULTATION ON FOOD LOSSES AND WASTE  DISSEMINATION OF CAMPAIGN “THINK, EAT, SAVE” IN LAC  PUBLIC POLICIES  CODE CONDUCT IN LAC
  14. 14. AWARENESS I SCENARIO 1 Isolated actions and Food losses and waste unknown SCENARIO 2 33 countries know the food looses and waste, fao with public and private partners raise evidence on food loss and waste in lac and reduce SCENARIO 3 The countries take integrated actions for the reduction of food loss and waste at least in 30% ? REDUCTION GOAL OF THE REGIONAL STRATEGY
  15. 15. “Future progress in agricultural production and climate change will mean very little to world food security if we continue losing and wasting much of the food we produce…” ( Jose Cuesta) THANKS email: tania.santivanez@fao.org
