Abstract: "O Programa das Nações Unidas para o Meio Ambiente (Pnuma) e a Organização para Agricultura e Alimentação (FAO) lançaram um guia para evitar o desperdício global de comida. O documento vai servir de orientação para que governos estaduais e municipais, empresas e sociedade civil implementem programas eficazes para evitar que os alimentos acabem no lixo."
Description: The scope of this Guidance is food waste prevention in the retail, hospitality (restaurants, hotels) and food service (schools, hospitals) supply chains, and household food waste. Waste and loss in the agricultural stages of production are not covered. This Guidance is based on the proven experiences of developing and delivering food waste programmes that have achieved significant measureable impact. One of these is the experiences in the UK, where avoidable household food waste has been reduced by 21% overall between 2007 and 2012, and food retailers, restaurants, food service providers and food and drink manufacturers are signed up to voluntary targets to reduce food waste. A wide range of experiences from across the globe have also been used, both in developing the Guidance and to illustrate examples of food waste prevention in action. This Guidance has been developed by using these proven experiences, in order to facilitate knowledge transfer; allowing others to develop and deliver programmes to prevent and reduce food waste more easily and effectively than might otherwise have been the case. There are currently a limited number of examples of such programmes, so it is likely that this Guidance can be further developed over time, drawing on new experiences from around the world. In the first instance, elements of this Guidance will be piloted in a range of countries.
