World Food Prize Borlaug Dialogue will address cracks in world food system
The theme of this year’s Borlaug Dialogue will focus on four major vulnerabilities in the world’s food systems, organizers with the World Food Prize Foundation announced this week. The discussion, “Breaking New Ground: Building Resilience Today for Improved Global Food Systems Tomorrow,” will tackle cracks in the food system including climate change, equity and access, nutrition, and finance and investment, according to a news release. The conversations surrounding those vulnerabilities will look at actions and outcomes that advance food security and resilience of the food system. “With the numerous challenges the world faces, it is essential to have a comprehensive approach to truly build resilience in our food systems,” Barbara Stinson, president of the World Food Prize Foundation, said in the release. This year’s conference will take place virtually Oct. 12-16 in Des Moines, and will draw an array of international leaders to address issues facing global food security.
