|Public Lecture on Global Food Security: Strategies against Food Insecurity and Hunger
(Faculty of Agr&Env -- General)
|Description:||Focusing on strategies and solutions against food insecurity and hunger, propelled by McGill's longstanding dedication and expertise in agriculture and environment, nutrition, and food security, the Conference provides a unique forum to foster a global paradigm shift; a shift towards convergence of understanding and commitment to reduce hunger and malnutrition.
The Fifth McGill Conference on Global Food Security once again highlighted the fact that world food security must remain an international priority and that the current momentum for action and investment must be sustained in order to respond adequately to the protracted food crisis and the further challenges to food security. Global agricultural research and development systems must result in increased agricultural production, commercialization and income generation for small holders to improve not just lives but livelihoods.
The Fifth Global Food Security Public Lecture drew over 250 participants from all fields of interest to examine the challenges of food prices and political instability. The 2013 Public Lecture promises to be as impactful.
|Details:||The Sixth McGill Conference on Global Food Security Public Lecture will address the strategies against food insecurity and hunger. Join international experts as they present their unique perspectives.|
