Status of the global food cold-chain: summary briefing

Food saved is as important as food produced. The UNEP-led Cool Coalition in collaboration with the Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), OzonAction and the Ozone Secretariat, with the support of the Italian Government, are producing a status report on the global food cold-chain, which will include case studies to show the current state and development across areas such as technologies, design approaches, finance and business models, policy, and planning. This brief is a short summary of the full report that will be published in December. The aim is to help better identify and accelerate solutions to simultaneously feed the world, support smallholder and marginal farmers, and protect our environment.
