About the event:

In February, the World Food Prize Foundation released a powerful statement penned by 24 of its Laureates urging the US Presidential Administration to focus on alleviating hunger, poverty and malnutrition around the globe. For the first time in 19 years, World Food Prize (WFP) Laureates mobilized as a cohort to issue a call for action needed to transform global food systems and work towards a healthier, more sustainable future.

For the second edition of the World Food Prize Digital Dialogue Series, a selection of Laureates and food systems experts, including Claudia Sadoff, Managing Director, Research Delivery and Impact, CGIAR, will discuss the letter and the power of collective action.
