How can cities tackle food waste? UrbanWINS webinarw

Date: Tuesday, 12 March 2019 11:00 - 12:30

Venue: Online

According to the European Commission, around 88 million tonnes of food waste are generated annually with associated costs estimated at 143 billion euros. According to FAO, up to one third of all food is spoiled or squandered before it is consumed by people, and food is lost or wasted throughout the supply chain. Some of the UrbanWINS cities have decided to respond to this problem and tackle food waste as part of their pilot actions.

ICLEI and these UrbanWINS cities want to present some of the initiatives being conducted to minimise food waste.
