"Food and the Environment"

This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.

PI: Mary K. Muth, RTI International

This project will contribute to the existing body of knowledge by defining types of impacts, assessing measurement methods, and identifying data sources with a focus on how best to prioritize food waste reduction efforts in the United States. The overall objective is to define and measure the ecological and environmental impacts of food loss and waste across regions within the U.S. food system taking into consideration all sources of impacts from input sourcing in agricultural production through landfill disposal of waste across types of foods. The intent is to provide actionable results that can help target cost-effective food waste reduction efforts under public and private initiatives.
