    The UN Rome-based agencies joint project aimed to improve smallholder food security and incomes in food deficit areas by reducing food losses. The Project contributes to the African Union Malabo Declaration (AUC, 2014) in which Member States committed to halve the levels of post-harvest losses by 2025. It also contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12 on ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns, specifically to target 12.3 that aims to halve food waste and reduce post-harvest losses by 2030. This technical brief presents the FAO methodology used to carry out studies on food loss analyses and the major findings and recommendations formulated to reduce post-harvest losses in the selected food supply chains in Burkina Faso (maize, sorghum, and cowpea), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (maize and rice) and the Republic of Uganda (maize, beans and sunflower), in the framework of the United Nations Rome-based Agencies’ joint project.
