World Food Day - Global Food Crisis

Global Food Crisis: Opportunities, Responsibilities and Solutions

The 2009 World Food Day Teleconference will consider the impact of the financial crisis on those living in poverty, the responsibilities of the rest of the world and the solutions that are emerging. Three experts from different backgrounds working on these issues will exchange views on the 26th annual teleconference. Max Finberg, newly appointed Director of the USDA Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships; Rep. Jim McGovern, serving his seventh term as representative from Massachusetts; and Joy Phumaphi, of Botswana, Vice President and Head of the Human Development Network at the World Bank will be our special guests.

In addition to the panelists there will be a live uplink with the Prize Laureate from the World Food Prize ceremonies in Iowa
