In this Food Loss and Waste Factsheet, learn how WWF aims to leverage food loss and waste as a non-controversial and cost-effective strategy to catalyze a more circular food system, mitigate climate change and nature loss, and help feed those in need.
Discover WWF's strategy for reshaping global food systems. This factsheet emphasizes the urgency to cease ecosystem degradation for food production. WWF envisions more resilient, nature-positive systems aligned with Sustainable Development Goals.
WWF's Freshwater and Food team confronts two of the biggest threats to nature—agriculture and infrastructure. In this factsheet you'll find a condensed overview of WWF's Freshwater and Food team's strategy which calls for a harmonious equilibrium between human needs and the conservation of the natural world.
This executive summary brief explains how federal subsidies for crop insurance and the Renewable Fuel Standard have inadvertently incentivized the conversion of grasslands. It also discusses how grasslands can be prioritized through programs and legislation.
In its seventh year, WWF’s Plowprint Report analyzes the rate of grasslands plow-up across the US, Canadian, and Mexican portions of the Great Plains. This analysis is based on the USDA’s annual Cropland Data Layer, the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Annual Crop Inventory, and Sentinel-2 satellite data classified using Google Earth’s Engine for Mexico from two years prior to the release date.
This summary report describes key findings and major takeaways from the 2020 workshop series. Suggested next steps will help guide researchers, funders, and policymakers–and shape the intersection that brings their respective work together–to advance our collective understanding of seaweed as a livestock feed ingredient.
Bending the Curve: The Restorative Power of Planet-Based Diets explores how a global shift toward Planet-Based diets, high in human-health benefits and low in environmental impacts, can restore nature and improve health.
The global Living Planet Index continues to decline. It shows an average 68% decrease in population sizes of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish between 1970 and 2016. A 94% decline in the LPI for the tropical subregions of the Americas is the largest fall observed in any part of the world.
World Wildlife Fund developed the Food Waste Warrior Curriculum in 2017, launched as part of the Wild Classroom platform. The team piloted the lessons in multiple DC schools, helping each to run food waste audits and reduction efforts. In the process, we garnered several key insights on the challenges, complexities, and areas of opportunity for fighting food loss and waste in schools.
The Living Planet Report documents the state of the planet—including biodiversity, ecosystems, and demand for natural resources—and what it means for humans and wildlife. Published by WWF every two years, the report brings together a variety of research to provide a comprehensive view of the health of the Earth.
