Report

This publication and accompanying tool support people across the food supply chain, particularly those calculating the water footprint of food and setting science-based targets, to:

  • Better understand and connect food loss and waste reductions with their efforts to reduce systems-wide water use.
  • Calculate and communicate the environmental benefits of FLW reductions.
  • Link those benefits to their science-based water use reduction targets.

 

These resources lay the foundation for guidance to organisations and governments in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) who are seeking to measure and tackle the water footprint associated with food imports, food waste and redistributed food.
