Reducing Food Loss and Waste: Ten Interventions to Scale Impact

This report lays out 10 “scaling interventions” designed to accelerate and spread adoption of policies and practices to help achieve a 50% reduction in food loss and waste worldwide, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3.

The publication builds off the report, Reducing Food Loss and Waste: Setting a Global Action Agenda, which introduced a three-part action agenda to achieve SDG 12.3: (a) the Target-Measure-Act approach, (b) an actor-specific to-do list, and (c) 10 “scaling interventions” designed to take the Target-Measure-Act approach and to-do list to scale. Here, we expand on the 10 “scaling interventions” by giving more detail and how these 10 interventions can be implemented.

This publication was jointly prepared by World Resources Institute (WRI) with support from The Rockefeller Foundation and in collaboration with food loss and waste experts from Iowa State University, the University of Maryland, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Wageningen University & Research (WUR), and the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP).
