INTRODUCTION

Food loss and waste have many negative economic and environmental impacts. Economically, they represent a wasted investment that can reduce farmers’ incomes and increase consumers’ expenses. Environmentally, food loss and waste inflict a host of impacts, including unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions and inefficiently used water and land, which in turn can lead to diminished natural ecosystems and the services they provide.

While the number of food insecure population remains unacceptably high, massive quantities of food are lost due to spoilage and infestations on the journey to consumers. However, one of the major ways of strengthening food security is by reducing these losses. It is of high importance in the effort to combat hunger, raise income and improve food security and livelihoods. This workshop is designed to shed light on postharvest losses and strategies to reduce them.

Interventions in PHL reduction are seen as an important component of the efforts of many agencies to reduce food insecurity. PHL is increasingly being recognized as part of an integrated approach to realizing agriculture’s full potential to meet the world’s increasing food and energy needs.
