Beyond the Seed: Leveraging Our Collective Best to Build a Zero Hunger World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join us for an engaging conversation and a dynamic breakout session about what stands in the way of achieving a zero hunger world - all from the perspective of practitioners in regions most affected by hunger.  Why are "aggies" calling upon the lawyers, techies, engineers and communications experts to please stand up?  Should fighting corruption be the focus of the fight for food access?  Is the private sector viewed as valuable or dangerous by those on the frontlines of fighting hunger? We look forward to discussing what is really at stake to make a real impact in ending hunger and malnutrition in our lifetime.

Speakers:
  • Barbara Ekwall, Senior Liaison Officer, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
  • Diane Hirakawa, President, The Mathile Institute for the Advancement of Human Nutrition, invited
  • James Kasongo, Country Director, Heifer International Zambia
  • Kari Niedfeldt-Thomas, Executive Director, The Mosaic Company Foundation
  • Prof. M.S. Swaminathan, Founder, M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation

Hosted by Humanitas Global, Community for Zero Hunger, FAO and MS Swaminathan Foundation.
