ROME---The UN food agency says one-third of all
food produced in the world gets wasted, amounting
to a loss of $750 billion a year.
The Rome-based Food and Agricultural Organi-
sation said in a report yesterday that food in developing
countries is wasted mostly due to poor harvesting
techniques, while in high-income areas the primary
cause of waste is careless consumer behaviour.
The report said food waste hurts the environment
by causing unnecessary carbon emissions, extra water
consumption and the reduction of biodiversity as
farming takes over more land. The most serious areas
of waste are of cereals in Asia and meat in wealthy
regions and Latin America.
FAO stressed the importance of raising awareness
among consumers. (AP)

Miss World organisers said Tuesday it would
be "impossible" to stage the final in Bali, vowing
to petition Indonesian authorities to move the
event back to Java after it was switched in the
face of radical Muslim protests.
As hundreds more demonstrators took to the
streets demanding the contest be scrapped, organ-
isers said they hoped to persuade officials this week
to reverse their decision to shift the whole show
to the Hindu-majority resort island.

would be to move everything to Bali," Nana Putra,
executive director of organiser and broadcaster
MNC Group, told AFP.
"Just getting the venue and all the accommodation
is impossible with APEC here," she said, referring
to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit
at the start of October. The final takes place on
World leaders and thousands of officials and
journalists will attend APEC, with many arriving
days before it starts to take part in pre-summit
meetings and activities.
Putra said organisers hoped to meet authorities
some time this week, but did not say when.
However, she insisted organisers had no plans to
cancel later rounds or the final and said they had
a back-up venue in Indonesia if it was needed,
although declined to give further details.
Government officials said Saturday the entire
three-week contest would be held on Bali, where
it opened Sunday after days of protests by radicals,
who denounced the pageant as "pornographic" and
Some of the later rounds were originally due to
take place in and around the capital Jakarta, including
the final which was to be staged in a massive con-
vention centre near the city in West Java province.
Hardliners kept the pressure up Tuesday, with
some 700 members of hardline group Hizbut Tahrir

office in Bandung city.---AFP
