Saint Mary's University-Winona Hosts Food Insecurity Forum

Thursday, November 17, 2011 - 05:30pm to 07:00pm EST (GMT -0500)

The acute suffering in East Africa is justifiably garnering headlines, but well beyond this crisis is an enduring challenge: how to deliver enough food to a growing world population amid diminishing crop yields and climate vagaries that threaten future growing seasons with drought and disease. This forum will deliver a digest of the latest reporting on food security issues and efforts to tackle this challenge on the science and policy frontiers.
