Upcoming G20 Summit Presents ‘Critical Opportunity’ To Address Food Security Crisis

In a post in the Chicago Council on Global Affairs’ “Global Food For Thought” blog, Adam Taylor, vice president of advocacy at World Vision, writes that the Group of 20 (G20) Summit in Cannes, France, next week “provides a critical opportunity for President Obama to galvanize G20 leadership in addressing the mounting crisis of food security — the lack of reliable, nutritious food for the world’s poorest people,” adding, “With its significant member resources and political clout, the G20 is in a unique position to ensure that effective continuing mechanisms and strategies are put in place to solve the problems of acute food insecurity in some regions such as east Africa and the continuing slow emergency in child and maternal malnutrition” (10/28).
