argylesock says… Here’s the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) asking for opinions about food loss, food waste and sustainability.

Food Governance

The High Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) has launched a consultation on the draft of the study: Food losses and waste in the context of sustainable food systems.

The draft study can be downloaded here (English) and the HLPE would welcome submission of material, suggestions, references, examples, on measurement of food losses and waste, key policies, successful initiatives and cost-benefits of different options, systemic approaches and solutions to reduce food losses and waste. Please read the topic to know more, available in EnglishFrench and Spanish.

Your inputs will be used to further elaborate the final report and findings of the study will feed into CFS 41 Plenary session on policy convergence (October 2014).

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
