Event Website

We are proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Chicago Council on Global Affairs’ Global Food Security Symposium, focusing on the critical link between global stability and food security. At this two-day event, we will join hundreds of experts and 20 exceptional next-generation leaders to delve into the use of big data in food security, the important role of finance in fostering a stable agricultural market system, and other critical topics.

Improving global food security and nutrition is one of our core areas of expertise. With more than 40 years of experience in international development, our work to strengthen agricultural markets, engage youth and women as critical leaders of the on- and off-farm workforce, and tackle the dual burden of malnutrition builds resilience, strengthens global stability and security, and contributes to the evidence base around what makes a robust food system that empowers all actors.

Join us for a post-event networking reception, featuring remarks from our Executive Vice President for International Development, Paul Weisenfeld, author of Meeting Youth Where They Are.
