McGill University is once again very pleased to deliver its conference on Global Food Security, with an exciting program and a gathering of distinguished international experts who will explore strategies and solutions against food insecurity and hunger. 

The Conference opens with a Public Lecture on Tuesday October 8 at 5pm at McGill’s Moyse Hall (Arts Building), with keynote speaker Marco Ferroni, Executive Director, Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture (Switzerland).  Held at McGill’s New Residence Hall, Conference presentations and discussions on October 9 seek to address the present challenges associated with strategies against food insecurity and hunger.  Participants attending the conference, which include representatives from government, students, academics, the private sector, national and international non-governmental agencies, and civil society, will have the opportunity to be part of the unveiling of a new era in which improved nutrition status of global populations is driven by agriculture as its sole raison d’être.

This is truly an exceptional opportunity to be part of a recognized and well-established international event on global food security.
