UN Food and Hunger

The United Nations says roughly one-third of the food produced worldwide is lost or wasted. In addition to failing to feed the world's hungry, the loss and waste also contributes to climate change. Agriculture and forestry are responsible for nearly a quarter of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. VOA’s Steve Baragona has more. VOA’s Vincent Makori is joined by Faustine Wabwire, senior foreign assistance policy analyst, at Bread for the World Institute to discuss climate poverty and hunger.
