Borlaug Symposium and World Food Prize Award Scheduled for October 14-16, 2009

August 28, 2009

The 2009 Borlaug Dialogue Symposium on “Food, Agriculture and National Security in a Globalized World” will take place on October 14 through 16, 2009 in Des Moines, Iowa.

The international symposium will gather global leaders and experts from diverse areas of expertise to engage in “conversations” about the crucial role food and agriculture play in connecting national and international security – and how meeting national and regional food-security needs can be done in a way that contributes to global stability. The formal awarding of the $250,000 World Food Prize will be the cornerstone of the event.

More information, including registration and an agenda are available here.
