Halving wasted food has been ranked among the most impactful solutions for mitigating climate change, and the audacious 50% target has been endorsed by the US government and included in the Sustainable Development Goals. Can we get there? And what are the co-benefits and tradeoffs for public health? Dr. Neff will provide an overview of food system contributions to climate change, the magnitude of food loss and waste, its key sources, and selected interventions, weaving in findings from my research on measurement, consumer behavior, and policy.
