Director General of the Ministry of Agriculture visits AgriProFocus

On Friday February 9, Marjolijn Sonnema, Director General of the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality visited the AgriProFocus office in Utrecht. She was curious to find out more about our network; who are our members, what drives us and how can the ministry and AgriProFocus work more together on agriculture and food security?

We wanted to present the broad variety of members and activities of our network. We invited members in Utrecht and set up a live video connection with Uganda and Benin.

Mengurangi Susut Hasil Pascapanen untuk Nutrisi

FAO mengestimasi 1/3 pangan yang diproduksi di seluruh dunia hilang atau tebuang antara produksi hingga konsumsi. Tak hanya berdampak sosial, ekonomi, dan lingkungan, susut hasil ini juga memperburuk kelaparan dan malnutrisi pada 800 juta orang, kerugian ekonomi mencapai USD 940 miliar, serta berdampak pada penggunaan air yang signifikan and emisi gas rumah kaca (FAO, 2011). Dengan mengurangi susut hasil dan bahan pangan yang terbuang, kita dapat menawarkan dampak sosial, ekonomi, dan lingkungan yang lebih baik.

GAIN tengah mengembangkan Aliansi Susut Hasil Pasca Panen untuk Nutrisi (Posharvest Loss Alliance for Nutrition/PLAN) untuk mengurangi susut hasil pascapanen dan sampah pangan secara global dengan cara menjawab kurangnya pengetahuan, teknologi, dan akses keuangan serta koordinasi yang buruk di sepanjang rantai pasok pangan utama. Pendekatan ini berfokus pada rantai nilai yang mampu atau berpotensi memenuhi nilai nutrisi signifikan un
