Highlights from the seminar
With more than 50 years of engagement in international agricultural development, UC Davis is a leader among U.S. universities in this presidential initiative to end hunger and address food insecurity.
Leading more Feed the Future Innovation Labs than any other university, UC Davis is tackling issues ranging from chickpea and millet productivity to poultry, horticulture, and asset management by small farmers in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Join us for a seminar with the chief scientist of the Bureau for Food Security at the U.S. Agency for International Development. Along with an overview of the horticulture and asset management programs, a panel discussion with the UC Davis directors of the Innovation Labs will explain how the campus is tackling some of the world's greatest challenges in food and agriculture through this initiative.
The seminar was organized by the UC Davis Government and Community Relations with the International Programs Office at the UC Davis College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
