Blog Examines Connection Between Environment, Agriculture, Food Security

Monday’s “celebration of Earth Day is an opportunity to remind ourselves and our partners of the connection between our environment, agriculture, and food and nutrition security and how we can work together to end world hunger and undernutrition,” Jonathan Shrier, acting special representative for global food security and deputy coordinator for diplomacy for Feed the Future, writes in the initiative’s blog. “Feed the Future, the U.S. government’s global hunger and food security initiative, is working with a variety of partners to meet the dual challenges of growing more while conserving natural resources,” he notes, and describes some of these efforts. “Together, these investments contribute to improved health, food security and nutrition and increase the stability of developing countries, while simultaneously supporting responsible management of natural resources,” he adds (4/22).
