1ST FLOOR CONFERENCE CENTER

The historic passage of the U.S. Global Food Security Act in July 2016 demonstrated U.S. leadership and bipartisan support in Congress to address global hunger, poverty, and malnutrition. The act required the Feed the Future interagency group, comprised of eleven U.S. agencies, to submit the first ever U.S. Global Food Security Strategy to Congress last fall. Join us to hear updates from senior leadership on the strategy and to discuss contributions from Congress, the Trump Administration, and U.S. government agencies.

What progress has been made since the legislation became law? How do we sustain momentum and keep policymakers engaged? What are the prospects for re-authorization next year?  What will the new Feed the Future portfolio look like in terms of countries, priorities, and programming?
