Twelve months on from The Economist’s inaugural Feeding the World summit, a high-level audience gathered in Amsterdam to discuss how to accelerate progress in coordinating efforts to tackle the planet’s food security crisis.

Industry leaders, Government ministers, donors, aid agencies and representatives of the research community explored opportunities to collaborate in delivering improved nutrition and sustainable agricultural markets.

New for 2013 – Interactive Workshops

During an intensive afternoon designed to provide practical solutions to existing problems, delegates selected between one of three expert working groups on the subject of:

  • Nutrition – what are the best ways to address the nutritional double burden of obesity and malnutrition?
  • Finance and risk management – what is the potential for microfinance and microinsurance to strengthen food security?
  • Science and technology – what is the effectiveness and potential of a number of approaches to boosting yield and productivity?

Places at the event will be limited to allow audience interaction during sessions and optimal networking opportunities.
