 Project objective

A projected human population of 10 billion and an increasing consumption of food are placing massive strain on the global agri-food system. Nonetheless, hunger and malnutrition remains a major problem in developing countries. Also, climate change poses also a great threat on food security due to the critical dependence of agri-food production on environmental conditions. Within this context, new strategies are needed in order to maximise the yield of food production systems while minimising wastage and reducing environmental impact. On a global scale, it is estimated that one-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally (1.3BN tons per year); even in the EU, despite significant policy efforts, 88MM tons of food are wasted annually, with associated costs estimated at €143BN. This causes waste in production resources (such as land, water, energy and inputs) and avoidable greenhouse gas emissions. Also, food production and consumption produce approximately one-third of total greenhouse gas emissions. All this represents a real threat to the security and sustainability of food supply chains. In the context of agri-food supply chains, Circular Economy provides very promising perspectives on tackling mentioned challenges related to food security and efficient resource use; however, barriers to the implementation of this alternative paradigm are significant. This project is predominantly focused on the identification and sharing of best practices for the implementation of Circular Economy in the food supply chain amongst a wide variety of stakeholders (including research institutions, big retailers, small production and distribution co-operatives). Identified operational solutions, models and methods for improving the performances of agri-food supply chains will be translated into a toolbox aimed at helping policymakers and businesses to identify, define and implement appropriate practices and policies.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "PROCEEDS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
