Best practices

Alongside country-based research and recommendations, The Global Food Donation Policy Atlas project has developed and compiled additional resources by policy area. These include:

  • ISSUE BRIEFS—Overviews that lay out common obstacles and best practices in each policy area.

  • BEST PRACTICE POLICIES AND GUIDANCE—Links to laws and policies that are currently in use by partner countries and international organizations.

  • WEBINAR SYNOPSES—Blog posts that summarize the major takeaways from global webinars with policymakers and stakeholders from partner countries discussing a policy area in detail, including barriers, innovations, and policy opportunities.

    Check back often as more resources become available.
