Global Food Loss and Waste Measurement Protocol

Upstream Technical Working Group (from harvest to market)

 

Current (deadline: 29 August): 

Bruno to review and update the 3 documents, and to then share them with each sub-group.

 

Work task (deadline: extended to 18 July):

The Upstream TWG has been divided in 3 subgroups: direct measurements, estimates and perceptions.

Task: to draft protocol text describing how to measure food loss and waste using the method assigned to your task group.

This can be done drawing on knowledge within the TWG subgroup and through research if required.

This text will form a sub-section within 2a of the guidance document. Where possible, please use the language of a standard, i.e., shall (a requirement), should (a recommendation), may (permissible/allowable). This would be most useful for those items the TWG thinks should be required aspects of the standard.
