# 10 in Top Publications

Food loss and waste (FLW) is an important issue in Canada, Mexico, and the United States, where almost 170 million tonnes of the food produced for human consumption is estimated to be wasted across the supply chain (CEC 2017b), while food security and resource efficiency are considered top priorities of the national social, environmental and development policies.

The Operational Plan of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation 2015–2016 (Operational Plan 2015–2016) established the North American Initiative on Food Waste Reduction and Recovery as part of its green economy and climate change portfolios. This work is a continuation of previous work and is delivered under the measurement and mitigation of food loss and waste project in the Operational Plan of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation 2017–2018 (Operational Plan 2017–2018).
