Co-hosted by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), P4G Partnerships and WRAP, this online event built on UNEP’s Food Waste Index Report 2021 to demonstrate that food waste is a global issue.

This event took place on Thursday 7 October 2021 (once in the morning and once in the afternoon to accommodate different time zones). Full details and webinar recordings are available below.

It made the case for greater funding of food waste prevention, and demonstrated how low and middle income countries in particular can leverage existing financial mechanisms to deliver food waste prevention strategies. It also highlighted the scale and challenge in funding food waste initiatives, the current barriers to investing, and the business case benefits of financial investment in food waste prevention.

A diverse array of speakers took part in the event from around the world, and each live presentation was recorded. (You can find out more about the speakers in the Event Programme at the bottom of the page, where you'll also find Questions and Answers.)

“The case for investing in food waste reduction is compelling because it saves money, reduces carbon emissions, and improves food availability. It is ripe for rapid scale-up in investment.”

Dr Richard Swannell International Director WRAP
