Food Waste: from field to fork

 

More and more of the worldโ€™s population is becoming concentrated in and around large cities. Ensuring
the right to have access to safe and nutritious food to the billions of people living in cities represents a global development challenge of the highest order.
Promoting sustainable agricultural production in urban and peri-urban areas and developing food systems
capable of meeting urban consumer demand will become increasingly important to global food security. Currently however, the important relationship between food security, agriculture and urbanization is often not sufficiently recognized.
As much as we need new thinking on global food system issues, we also need new doing. Around the world, people and organizations have developed innovative, on-the-ground solutions to the most pressing issues in food and agriculture.
This blog is for the people who have to eat every day. It offers solutions and environmentally sustainable ways of alleviating hunger, obesity, and poverty by creating a network of connections and information for all of us to consume and share. For the farmers and producers, policy makers and government leaders, researchers and scientists, academics and journalists, and the funding and donor communities to collaborate on providing sustainable solutions for our most pressing environmental and social problems.
