Statistics show that globally about 33% of the food produced in the world is lost or wasted. On the other hand, we have about 11 % of world suffering from malnutrition and hunger. According to UN based WHO, even if 25 % of the food wasted is saved then it can alleviate the hunger problem. The problem is acute and is obvious but yet organizations and people have not come to grips with it. Thankfully, during the last few years the situation is changing. The factors responsible for the problem can be identified under three approaches - Advocacy, Attitude and Know-How. How can we as project management professionals get involved and help solve this problem. What are opportunities from a business perspective? What are the options at work, home or in society? How can we contribute to the solution as part of our social responsibility? This webinar will look at these questions and present ideas and projects which will help save and recover food waste.

This is an awareness program. The first half of the presentation will deal with issue of food waste and food recovery worldwide and the current practices. The latter part will consider solutions to the problem, especially with a perspective of areas where project managers can contribute.
