Cosponsored by NYU Wagner’s International Public Service Association (IPSA) and Office of International Programs.

An estimated 840 million people are chronically undernourished. As the world’s population grows and moves into cities, and with the added challenges of climate change and rising food prices, it has become an ever more daunting task to grow and distribute enough quality food. Join practitioners, scholars and students as we discuss what is being done and what more must be done to combat this food crisis at home and internationally.
