Roger Thurow - Feeding Development

This post by senior fellow Roger Thurow originally appeared on the Outrage and Inspire blog. 

As part of the Feeding Development campaign, Chicago Council Senior Fellow Roger Thurow sat down with Devex’s Adva Saldinger to discuss some important global agriculture issues. You can watch his interviews below.

The Feeding Development campaign is taking place throughout July with the goal of reimagining solutions for a more food-secure future. It is an online conversation that links the environment, land rights, supply chains, and nutrition to real progress, from seed and soil to a healthy meal. Learn more.

About

The Global Food and Agriculture Program aims to inform the development of US policy on global agricultural development and food security by raising awareness and providing resources, information, and policy analysis to the US Administration, Congress, and interested experts and organizations.

The Global Food and Agriculture Program is housed within the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, an independent, nonpartisan organization that provides insight – and influences the public discourse – on critical global issues. The Council on Global Affairs convenes leading global voices and conducts independent research to bring clarity and offer solutions to challenges and opportunities across the globe. The Council is committed to engaging the public and raising global awareness of issues that transcend borders and transform how people, business, and governments engage the world.
