The activities of “Expo 2020 Dubai”, which focus on noble issues on World Food Day, continued, including awareness of “preventing food waste”.

The Australian pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai hosted three chefs, who presented different methods that would reduce food waste, as part of an event entitled “Preventing Food Waste”, as part of a series of events witnessed by “Expo 2020 Dubai” on World Food Day.

The pavilion witnessed the “Cooking Challenge”, which included a group of children, in the presence of the Commissioner-General of Australia at Expo 2020 Dubai, Justin McGowan, and a number of experts in this field.

McGowan said, “There is enough to feed everyone on Earth, but about a third of the food that the world produces is wasted, and nearly half a billion people suffer from hunger, so this awareness during the event is important. We can ignore it,” he said, noting that 25% of the water used in agriculture is used to grow food that will eventually be wasted.

For her part, the United Nations Resident Coordinator for the United Arab Emirates and Deputy Commissioner-General of the United Nations at “Expo 2020”, Dr. Dina Assaf, said, “The World Food Day was set by the United Nations to remind us of issues that concern the world, and it is nice that around (Expo 2020 Dubai) It addresses many sustainability issues, and it is very natural for us to care about a day like this, and as the United Nations, we consider the UAE a key partner, not only in hosting United Nations initiatives, but also in demonstrating its strong commitment to moving forward towards completing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

She added, “The statistics are very worrying globally, as nearly a third of the food produced in the world is lost or wasted, a total of 1.3 billion tons of food annually.”
