Dysmus Kisilu: Improving Farmers Access to Cold Storage Facilities
Dysmus: Did you know that food loss amounts to roughly $310 billion in developing countries? Estimates from the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Bank suggests that up to 47 percent of the $940 billion needed to eradicate hunger in sub-Saharan Africa by 2050 will be required for the post-harvest system. Fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and tubers have the highest loss rate of any food in developing countries, with 45-50% occurring during post-harvest and processing. This can all be traced back to constraints in harvesting techniques, as well as a lack of storage and cooling facilities.
