Type de monographie : Rapport


With this new report, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers is calling for urgent action to encourage the roll out of sustainable cold and frozen supply chain or ‘cold chain’ in the developing world, in order to prevent unnecessary food loss, help alleviate hunger and improve global food security. The Institution’s key recommendations in this new report are: Governments of newly emerging and rapidly industrialising economies must prioritise support investment in cold chain infrastructure to improve food security, underpin development and help alleviate poverty; Donor country governments and development NGOs must support and incentivise aid recipients to develop sustainable cold chains using renewable energy and waste cold; The UK engineering community should come together to define in detail the potential opportunities a joined-up cold economy presents for the developed and developing world.
