ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
Convened annually by the Global Food and Agricultural Program of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, the symposium on global agriculture and food security provides a platform for discussion about the US government and international community’s progress on addressing the problem of food insecurity.
NEXT GENERATION DELEGATION
Since 2013, the Global Food Security Symposium Next Generation Delegation program has provided an opportunity for promising students to engage in symposium discussions and to interact with business and policy leaders, civil society, and social entrepreneurs working on agriculture, food, and nutrition issues. With its focus on pathways to opportunity for the next generation, the symposium will offer key insights on how to leverage past successes, and invigorate future efforts amidst an evolving global landscape.
In honor of our 10th year of programming, we are inviting past Next Generation Delegates back to the 2020 symposium to share their experiences and current work. As such, we will not be accepting a new cohort of delegates this year.
Climate change is real and the effects are real...Africa has contributed the least to the warming of the planet..but is suffering the most extreme effects of climate change.
