Presentation made at: Young Professionals Conference: Innovative Ideas to Feed the World

Ms. Daniela Demel (WFP), Camelia Bucatariu (FAO), Sandra Ferrari (FAO).

2012 data states that one in eight people is chronically undernourished. The causes of food and nutrition insecurity are interlinked dimensions of availability, access, utilization and stability. The world population is expected to reach 9.3 billion by 2050, of which 2/3 urban. FAO estimates that a 60% increase in global production will be necessary to meet the food and nutrition needs.

By contrast, approximately 1/3 of the yearly global food production for human consumption gets lost or wasted. On average, each consumer in Europe and North America wastes approximately 95-115 kg of food/year, while the vast majority of that waste is avoidable.

Preventative measures in these regions, including targeted action at the household level and public awareness, could greatly affect the culture of food consumption, as well as attitudes towards the current massive food waste in developed countries.

Project proposal
To develop a practical multimedia tool that aims at raising consumers’ awareness, prevent household food waste, promote local and national efforts to prevent food loss/waste, and raise funds for global food and nutrition security.

Expected Impact
Enabled consumers worldwide will save and share food, which will lead to reduced consumption and production pressure for an optimized and sustainable food system.20 Monetary donations from consumers and companies to organizations that fight hunger globally will support food and nutrition security.
