The Baroness Goudie Blog breakfast ‘Food Security: How We Feed The World’s Seven Billion People’

A BLOG POST BY STEPHENIE FOSTER I’m looking forward to again moderating Baroness Goudie's blog breakfast on April 16.  This year’s focus is on the importance of food security for the world’s 7 billion inhabitants.  We will be talking about the global food crisis and the fact that we need to address how to feed the approximately one billion who are hungry.  As I've written before, in most developing countries, rural women are the majority of small-scale farmers, and we’ll also be talking about the importance of solutions that are focused on these women farmers. The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that if women had the same access to productive resources as men, they would increase the yields on their farms by 20 to 30 percent, which could in turn reduce the number of hungry people around the globe by up to 150 million.  It should be an exciting discussion.  If you are in DC and interested in attending, please send me an email.
