Dear Colleague:

The International Law Institute (ILI) invites you to nominate appropriate candidates to its upcoming seminar, Achieving Food Security, July 22- August 2, 2013.

The seminar will equip participants with the tools necessary to introduce and improve food security in their respective countries, and to address short and long term obstacles along the way. Participants to this seminar will be encouraged to think fundamentally about the topics selected for discussion, and also to consider how climate change and environmental issues affect long term food security and agricultural productivity - within the context of a strategic national sector plan.

If you are interested in applying for, or nominating a colleague to attend this course, please contact us at +1-202-247-6006 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
