The third annual DuPont Seed Security for Food Security Forum brought together nine experts to discuss the role of seed security and crop diversity in global food security and agricultural sustainability. The event, moderated by Jim Gaffney, Global Biotech Affairs and Regulatory Lead – Ag Traits, attracted a diverse and global audience during World Food Prize Week.
“A recurring theme for the day was that we are all in this together, and no one person nor organization can make the changes necessary to create food security and prosperity, regardless of geography or farm size,” said Gaffney. “Multiple organizations, like those gathered at the symposium, must work together and make an impact. DuPont Pioneer sponsors the forum for that very reason – to help make connections amongst diverse individuals and help create opportunities for collaboration.”
