The Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) invite development practitioners, researchers working in food security, and others to provide insight on research investments to support the U.S. Government’s Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS).
The event, titled "Aligning Research Investments to the Global Food Security Strategy: A Three-Day AgExchange on Nutrition, Resilience, and Agriculture-Led Economic Growth," will be held April 18 to 20. It will include facilitated online discussions to explore research needs across three core themes from the GFSS Results Framework: agriculture-led economic growth, resilience, and nutrition.
The agenda will kick off with a live webinar, opened by Dr. Brady Deaton, BIFAD Chair and Chancellor Emeritus of the University of Missouri, and featuring remarks by Dr. Ann Bartuska, Acting Chief Scientist and Under Secretary, Research Education, and Economics Mission Area, U.S. Department of Agriculture; and presentations from Dr. Saharah Moon Chapotin, Deputy Assistant to the Administrator in USAID's Bureau for Food Security and Dr. Robert Bertram, Chief Scientist of the Bureau for Food Security, USAID.
