The Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality and Ministry of Foreign Affairs jointly plea for closer collaboration to tackle the challenge of global food security. Wageningen University & Research (WUR) wants to contribute to the challenges of feeding the growing world population. WUR focus on 3 key issues: First, the promotion of healthy and sustainable food systems reducing yield gaps and enhancing food safety especially in vastly growing urban areas. Second, to develop new options for circular approaches, reducing food waste & losses, based on smart technologies and contributing to youth employment & women. Third, to improve diets, through increasing the availability of vegetables and by enhancing opportunities for changing protein intake from animal-based to plant-based inputs.
