IFPRI will participate in the 2018 Borlaug Dialogue International Symposium, which takes place October 17-19, 2018.
The theme of the 2018 Borlaug Dialogue explores the massive effort to feed 9.5 billion people expected by 2050. Our still undefined ability to feed the projected world population requires the attention of problem-solvers across stakeholder groups. The Borlaug Dialogue will bring together over 1,200 people from more than 65 countries to address cutting-edge issues related to global food security and nutrition. Through the Borlaug Dialogues, the World Food Prize foundation helps build alliances in the struggle against world hunger and malnutrition
