ACHIEVING FOOD SECURITY
July 21-August 1, 2014
The right to food has been recognized since the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights; yet achieving food security remains a challenge. Participants to this seminar will be encouraged to think fundamentally about the topics selected for discussion, and in particular to consider how the private sector can be mobilized in the effort to secure long term food security and to increase agricultural productivity - within the context of a strategic national sector plan. This seminar will equip participants with the tools necessary to introduce and improve food security in their respective countries, on both policy and implementation levels. Case studies will be introduced throughout the seminar. The bulk of the seminar will focus on “Implementing and Sustaining Food Security” below.
