Fighting World Hunger: Shaping Phase II of the Green Revolution


Location: Hesburgh Center Auditorium, Hesburgh Center for International Studies

Margaret Carroll Boardman is a Reilly Center visiting scholar. This talk is cosponsored by the International Development Research Council.

Abstract: The U.N. World Food Program estimates that one sixth of the human population suffers from lack of nutritious food. Population experts predict that by 2050 the world population will increase from 6 to close to 9 billion. Not only will world hunger increase but it will be magnified as certain areas of the world deplete their groundwater resources.
