Approximately one-third of all food produced in the world (FAO) is lost or wasted. With 815 million people – 1 out of every 9 on the planet – food insecure or undernourished in 2016, a population expected to increase by 2 billion by 2050, rapid resource depletion and a changing climate, postharvest loss reduction needs to be at the center of strategies for sustainable development. Effective postharvest management is paramount to achieving the SDGs.
The wildfires in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada in May 2016 consumed more than 2,400 structures and nearly 600,000 hectares of forest. Considered as Canada’s costliest disaster, it was a case showing the need to have proactive (and not reactive) disaster risk management measures in place –fire risk maps for ensuring safe evacuation in fire prone areas or designating the areas as unsafe for human habitation. Thinking about ‘systems’ means focusing on underlying causes of risks, hazards and vulnerabilities, and what solutions can reduce and manage them.

International migration is not a recent phenomenon. It is on the contrary a remarkably stable global pattern involving about 3% of the world’s population. The stock of international migrants is estimated at 247 million and constantly increasing. Migration has furthermore never been so diverse in terms of the populations, trajectories and human realities involved.
