Hi All,


I hope the food-waste research community is doing okay. Some of you may interested in a couple of food-waste events this week.  


The first is:  ‘TACKLING THE FOOD WASTE FUNDING GAP: Financing food waste prevention to combat climate change’.

Co-hosted by WRAP, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and P4G – Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030, the event will build upon the UNEP Food Waste Index Report 2021, which shows that food waste is a global issue on a massive scale.

It is being run at two different times on Thursday 7 October 2021:

  • 1000-1130 BST/1200-1330 Nairobi/1700-1830 Singapore and
  • 1000-1130 Mexico City/1100-1230 EST/1200-1330 Brasilia/1600-1730 BST

You’ll hear about the business case for greater funding of food waste prevention initiatives, the barriers to investing and how to overcome them, and discover how leveraging existing financial mechanisms can deliver food waste prevention strategies.

This event is for you if you have an interest in food security and food poverty, or work for a food and drink business looking to decarbonise its supply chain to achieve Net Zero. You can book your free place here.

In addition, WRAP is also co-hosting a virtual event on Wednesday 6 October 2021, in collaboration with UNEP and World Resources Institute: ‘THE HIDDEN HERO: How can a Net Zero food system be delivered to the benefit of people and planet?’.


All the best,
