The conference will provide an excellent platform for researchers, academics, farmers, industry, development agencies, civil society and policy makers to learn, share information, build networks and partnerships with the overall objective of identifying effective interventions to reduce FLW in the continent.

PEF is one of the sponsors of the event. The specific objectives of the conference are as follows:

  1. To raise awareness on food losses and waste through data and information sharing.
  2. To document the impact of postharvest food loss and waste on food and nutrition in Africa.
  3. To identify and disseminate effective and appropriate technologies and practices for FLW reduction in the African context.
  4. To identify postharvest “Skill Gaps” and “Technology Gaps” in Africa’s higher education and extension systems
  5. To identify effective multi-stakeholder strategies and policy interventions for FLW reduction
  6. To provide a platform for participants to build networks and partnerships for resource mobilization and other activities geared towards FLW reduction
  7. To generate a comprehensive action plan for the reduction of food loss and waste for the African continent.
