    Food loss and waste (FLW) along food value chains in the Near East and North Africa (NENA) are estimated to reach 250kg per person and cost over 60 billion USD annually. The social, economic, and environmental impacts are serious for a region that relies heavily on global food imports, has limited potential to increase food production, and faces scarcity of water and arable land. Substantial amounts of FLW occur at all stages of the food supply chain, but roughly two-third occurs during production, handling, processing, and distribution of food, whereas one-third occurs at the consumer-level.The project “Food losses and waste reduction and value chain development in Egypt and Tunisia” funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation aims at reducing FLW throughout selected food value chains, focusing primarily on the post-harvest, trading, and processing stages of the chains.
