KENYA-FOOD-ENVIRONMENT-UNEP

British author and anti-food waste campaigner Tristram Stuart (C) takes a bite of rejected green beans on February 19, 2013 during the UNEP Governing Council at the UN headquarters in Nairobi, as he chats with delegates on the extent of food waste grown by Kenyan farmers but rejected by UK supermarkets due to cosmetic imperfections. The campaign aims to promote actions by consumers and food retailers to dramatically cut the 1.3 billion tonnes of food lost or wasted each year -- which, aside from the cost implications and environmental impacts, increases pressure on the already straining global food system -- and help shape a sustainable future.
