Learning Journeys

Today, nearly one in eight people goes to bed hungry every night. And by 2050, the population will rise to over 9 billion. In our quest to provide a growing and more affluent world with access to safe, affordable, nutritious food, we’ve created Learning Journeys: opportunities to explore critical questions about global food security.

 
How do we achieve food security?
Answering one of the planet's most critical questions
It's an issue that can be solved, but it presents tough questions. How do we move food where it's needed? How do we increase crop yields in a sustainable way? And how do we give farmers the tools they need? Our Learning Journeys serve as forums to discuss these challenges and work toward solutions that will create a more food-secure world.

Africa – June 2015
Increasing Africa’s agricultural production is essential for achieving food security. Despite its vast potential, Africa has the lowest agricultural productivity in the world and must import much of its food. We will convene emerging leaders from diverse stakeholder groups to look at these issues, specifically in Zambia and South Africa.
