Water-Food Nexus Session at the WWF8 // Water for Food Processing: Waste Reduction, Optimization and Reuse

This session will explore strategies for accounting and reducing food losses in the supply chain, while integrating opportunities for water optimization and reuse in the food-processing sector as an additional approach to reduce waste. These strategies will be analyzed using tools and comparison metrics for the decision-making process.

Session at the 8th World Water Forum in Brazil.

One-third of all food is wasted as it moves from field to fork. Besides the economic costs, wasted food consumes a quarter of all water used by agriculture annually, while putting pressure on land and energy resources. Thus, cutting food waste could get us closer to feeding nine billion people by 2050.
