What to do with wastage plant parts? / Published March 15, 2018 by Dikshit Poudel

What to do with wastage plant parts?

About 40% food used to get loss during post and pre harvest management. Alongside 20% get lost from plants parts which are not preferred. Yes we use those parts to minimize 60% loss from the commodities.

SDG 2: Zero Hunger / Published March 6, 2018 by Dikshit Poudel

SDG 2: Zero Hunger

http://www.undp.org/content/undp/en/home/sustainable-development-goals/goal-2-zero-hunger/targets/

GOAL 2 TARGETS
sdg-cover-en-2b
By 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round

By 2030, end all forms of malnutrition, including achieving, by 2025, the internationally agreed targets on stunting and wasting in children under 5 years of age, and address the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women and older persons

By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment

By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality

By 2020, maintain the genetic diversity of seeds, cultivated plants and farmed and domesticated animals and their related wild species, including through soundly managed and diversified seed and plant banks at the national, regional and international levels, and promote access to and fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge, as internationally agreed

Increase investment, including through enhanced international cooperation, in rural infrastructure, agricultural research and extension services, technology development and plant and livestock gene banks in order to enhance agricultural productive capacity in developing countries, in particular least developed countries

Correct and prevent trade restrictions and distortions in world agricultural markets, including through the parallel elimination of all forms of agricultural export subsidies and all export measures with equivalent effect, in accordance with the mandate of the Doha Development Round

Adopt measures to ensure the proper functioning of food commodity markets and their derivatives and facilitate timely access to market information, including on food reserves, in order to help limit extreme food price volatility.
Facts and figures

Hunger

Globally, one in nine people in the world today (795 million) are undernourished

The vast majority of the world’s hungry people live in developing countries, where 12.9 per cent of the population is undernourished

Asia is the continent with the most hungry people – two thirds of the total. The percentage in southern Asia has fallen in recent years but in western Asia it has increased slightly

Southern Asia faces the greatest hunger burden, with about 281 million undernourished people. In sub-Saharan Africa, projections for the 2014-2016 period indicate a rate of undernourishment of almost 23 per cent

Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45 per cent) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year

One in four of the world’s children suffer stunted growth. In developing countries the proportion can rise to one in three

66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone.

Food security

Agriculture is the single largest employer in the world, providing livelihoods for 40 per cent of today’s global population. It is the largest source of income and jobs for poor rural households

500 million small farms worldwide, most still rainfed, provide up to 80 per cent of food consumed in a large part of the developing world. Investing in smallholder women and men is an important way to increase food security and nutrition for the poorest, as well as food production for local and global markets

Since the 1900s, some 75 per cent of crop diversity has been lost from farmers’ fields. Better use of agricultural biodiversity can contribute to more nutritious diets, enhanced livelihoods for farming communities and more resilient and sustainable farming systems

If women farmers had the same access to resources as men, the number of hungry in the world could be reduced by up to 150 million

1.4 billion people have no access to electricity worldwide – most of whom live in rural areas of the developing world. Energy poverty in many regions is a fundamental barrier to reducing hunger and ensuring that the world can produce enough food to meet future demand.

Our Mission

Sukuti is the team of agriculture students aiming global food security through glocal food promotion ensuring nutritional security as well through the application of traditional concept of post harvest management from the parts of lesser preference and low utilization which ultimately reduces the food loss. We pursue to solve food insecurity by making our nutritious products available, accessible and affordable to even low income group along with uplifting the status of resource poor farmers.

Our Background

TFF provides us with an ample space to link ourselves with experts, get mentored, have direct interaction and effectively transform our knowledge to contribute food insecurity. We care on utilizing foods which otherwise have been wasted, providing healthy and fulfilled nutritious diet in lean seasons which uses traditional food preservation concept. We want to prepare the 4 different dry products; Sukuti from parts of vegetable with less preferences from resource poor farmers and marketing them.
