In many of the poorest countries, 20-40% of crop yields are lost because of inadequate pre- and post-harvest support. Likewise, vast quantities of food are squandered during production and consumption phases of the food chain.
- Build local storage facilities and transportation mechanisms, including cold chain storage for food preservation.
- Localise the application of agronomic knowledge, pest-identification and meteorological information.
- Educate the public on sustainable consumption and production needs and behaviours, including on the need to reduce food waste.
- Provide risk management tools to support farmers in managing weather and market variations.
