THE STATE OF FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION IN THE WORLD 2020

This year, the report includes a special focus on transforming food systems for affordable healthy diets. It analyses the cost and affordability of healthy diets around the world, by region and in different development contexts. New analysis is presented on the “hidden” health and climate-change costs associated with our current food consumption patterns, as well as the cost savings if we shift towards healthy diets that include sustainability considerations. The report also offers policy recommendations to transform current food systems and make them able to deliver affordable healthy diets for all – crucial to all efforts to achieve Zero Hunger – SDG2.

COVID-19 has exposed critical flaws in Sustainable Development Goals | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

The UN should ‘reset’ the Sustainable Development Goals for the new COVID-19 economy, according to two leading scientists.

La sécurité alimentaire des pays émergents en question

La sécurité alimentaire des pays émergents en question | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Fin mars 2020, les rapports du Conseil International des Céréales, de l’USDA, ou encore de la FAO font état d’une situation apparemment rassurante dans la mesure où les stocks en céréales, riz et soja sont importants, avec des ratios stocks/consommation confortables.

Derrière la crise sanitaire du Covid-19 se profile l’ombre inquiétante d’une crise de la sécurité alimentaire dans les pays émergents qui dépendent des importations pour assurer la couverture des besoins, en Afrique, en Asie et aussi en Amérique Latine.

How To Reduce Food Waste

How To Reduce Food Waste | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it
With sustainable and plant-based diets becoming more normalised, attention has been given to food waste and how to reduce its impact on the environment; the handling of food and its associated greenhouse gas emissions are not far behind those of the energy and transportation industries. 
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), if food waste were a country, it would be the 3rd-largest contributor of carbon emissions, after the US and China. In terms of area, food waste would be as big as India and Canada combined. These figures are staggering considering that 11% of the global population is undernourished.
