Gloabl Harvest Initiative: Taking Down Fences To Meet Future Needs
Date:3/3/2010

March 17 symposium to unveil study aimed at ensuring global food security and sustainability.

Washington (PRWEB) -- On March 17, the Global Harvest Initiative (GHI), a not-for-profit group whose mission is to sustainably double agricultural output and improve storage and distribution to eliminate the global productivity gap, will host a symposium in Washington, D.C. to discuss the group’s science-based blueprint for meeting long-term increases in global demand for agricultural products. The blueprint, a four-chapter study, was commissioned to provide groundwork to shape the policies necessary to sustainably close the projected gap between agricultural supplies and demands.

The symposium “Closing the Gap: Examining an Alternative Future” continues the Global Harvest Initiative’s quest to develop specific policies with a global perspective and supporting those policies with changes in the global agricultural system.

As part of the symposium, The Center for Strategic and International Studies, one of the world’s preeminent international policy institutions, will conduct an expert panel discussion on the link between adequate food supplies and global security.

“This symposium brings together a prominent group of industry experts to find solutions and suggest policies for addressing one of the world’s most fundamental issues,” said Dr. William G. Lesher, executive director of the Global Harvest Initiative. “We are coming together to share ideas to achieve a common goal of sustainably feeding the world in the future.”

The authors of the study will discuss their findings:
