Feeding the World's Hungry: Financing More Efficient Food Assistance
Tuesday, April 27, 2010 / 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm
More than 1 billion people around the world go hungry every day. Erasing this tragedy is one of the great moral imperatives of our time — and finance can play a pivotal role. In 2009, the G-8 nations put forth a three-pronged strategy for improving food security, focusing on strengthening long-term agricultural development, emergency food assistance, and safety-net and nutrition programs. Panelists discussed the best mechanisms to improve food security, the strategies that are working and how financial tools can help.
