Exhibition on Food Waste: Internationaler Künstlerverein e.V & Hawa Artists, Mar. 28 – Apr. 28 2017 @ the Nairobi National Museum
Opening: March 28, 2017
Venue: National Museum
Until: April 28, 2017
Due to global mass-distribution the world is divided into the very rich and the very poor where a disconcerting percent of the population, especially children suffer from hunger. As taken the year 2050 will see an explosion of the population that will widen this gap – about 40 percent more food is needed! Research about the food distribution shows that at the moment nearly the same rate of food products is wasted either as crop on the fields, insufficient warehouses or transport, lack of processing or during distribution and at the consumer level.
The gap of available food and demand could be closed theoretically by a better transfer of know-how and a change of consumer habits. The exhibition of the IKV-Club of international artists supports the awareness of Food Waste as a challenge through this collaborative exhibition by African and German artists.
The exhibition is within the concept of the first African Food Waste Congress organized under the leadership of the University of Nairobi that brings together worldwide experts in agriculture, food processing and the total supply chain to work towards solutions for this problem.

Every year since 2008, the world had become less peaceful. In the Horn and Central Africa, conflict threatens and destroys the lives, homes and jobs of millions of women, men and children, trapping them in a vicious cycle of violence, poverty and inequality. Efforts to address and prevent conflicts and disasters face serious obstacles. In these countries, civil society space is shrinking as both physical and political access is limited and upholding humanitarian principles of impartiality and independence—particularly in conflict situations—remains a key challenge.
By the beginning of this year, it was believed that over 51 million people were forcibly displaced as a result of persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. This is believed to be the highest number since the Second World War. One-third of the world’s poor live in fragile and conflict-ridden countries. By 2018, this share is likely to grow to half, and by 2030 it could be as much as two-thirds.
On 14 March 2017, the Rift Valley Forum will host a panel discussion and photo exhibition featuring voices of displaced women in South Sudan, Burundi, Ethiopia, Uganda and parts of the DRC. The discussion will look into peace processes in the region and the role of the international community in ensuring that peace agreements are implemented.
