Food Security Remains High-Level Priority In 2012

In this post in the Department of State’s “DipNote” blog, Jonathan Shrier, acting special representative for global food security, reflects on food security issues and accomplishments in 2011, writing, “These efforts leave us well situated in 2012 to lead the [L’Aquila Food Security Initiative (AFSI)] group, which aims to strengthen mutual accountability among participating governments in meeting food security commitments. … Ultimately, our goal is to ensure that food security remains a high-level global priority through the U.S. presidency of the G8 and beyond” (1/10).
