Reducing PHL: A Food Systems Approach
ADMI 10 year webinar series
The ADM Institute for the Prevention of Postharvest Loss has spent the last decade promoting innovations, pioneering postharvest food systems research, and building capacity towards better postharvest management.
This webinar series brings together experts from universities, research institutions, non-profits, and the private sector to share best practices, lessons learned, and priorities in postharvest loss reduction.
ENABLING SUCCESSFUL SCALING OF POSTHARVEST LOSS INNOVATIONS (January 27, 2022)
A decade ago, the technical solutions to postharvest loss seemed to be widely understood; however, widespread adoption has remained a challenge. Three innovators from Bangladesh, Ghana, and the United States discuss technologies they have helped develop and key solutions that have enabled adoption and scaling.

IMPORTANCE OF CAPACITY BUILDING IN PROMOTING BETTER POSTHARVEST MANAGEMENT (February 23, 2022)
Strengthening institutional and human capacity is a frequently overlooked topic in promoting improved postharvest management. National and local research institutions, non-profits, and farmer cooperatives play critical roles in extension, knowledge sharing, farmer training, and enabling change. This webinar features success stories of integrating postharvest management training in ways that build capacity for people and institutions.
