Abstract

Féret offers a practice-driven approach to local solutions and regional strategies that contribute to halve food waste by 2030. Building on the EU-funded ECOWASTE4FOOD project, the chapter focuses on the multi-actor arrangements that enable eco-innovation and social innovation to grow in various EU countries. In addition to looking at the European Union policies to address food waste, Féret draws attention to some sectoral/horizontal dimensions and strategies wherein food waste can be addressed in the food system. This chapter concludes with a discussion on the role that city and regional authorities can play so to prevent food waste through interactive learning and multi-actor action plans.
