USAID Administrator Samantha Power called for an acceleration and expansion of agricultural investment as a critical pillar of addressing current and future global food crises, and announced new USAID initiatives to spur research to improve agricultural production around the world, strengthen resilience, and address the root causes of hunger, malnutrition, and poverty.

In remarks at the 2022 Norman E. Borlaug International Dialogue, hosted by the World Food Prize Foundation in Des Moines, Iowa, Administrator Power underscored the challenges the world faces in addressing hunger as well as the impacts of climate change and conflict on food systems and food insecurity, exacerbated by Russia’s unprovoked war on Ukraine, and called for urgent action to accelerate innovations and technology that will feed the world.
