Given expected population growth over the next century, global leaders will need to recognize and address food security as a paramount national, economic, human and environmental interest.
Over the past three years, the Aspen Institute’s Food Security Strategy Group has studied the world's premier long term food security challenges. The resulting report and this web guide outline a prioritized framework through which leaders can coordinate and elevate food security planning over the next 30 years, including practical and implementable private and public sector measures.
The Food Security Strategy Group was a high-level, non-partisan, and international forum through which a group of ~50 leaders and experts—drawn from government, academia, and the private and non-profit sectors—explored pre-eminent food security challenges.
The Strategy Group wa co-chaired by Madeleine K. Albright, Thomas A. Daschle, Tony Elumelu, and Dan Glickman. Strategy Group members aimed their discussions at cross-sectoral solutions between four interlinked areas: population, health and poverty; science, technology and innovation; markets, trade and investment; and environmental sustainability.
The Group, developed by the Institute's Energy and Environment, Aspen Global Health and Development, and Middle East Programs launched in June 2013 with a 3-day roundtable dialogue in Marrakesh, Morocco and convened in Rome, Belgrade, Des Moines and between 2013 and 2015.
