The Human Face of Trade and Food Security - Report Launch

December 13, 2017 • 3:30 – 5:00 pm EST
Agricultural markets are more connected and capable of delivering economic opportunity and food security today than ever before. As agricultural markets have evolved, so have the rules and regulations governing agricultural trade and value chains. For smallholder farmers in countries like Kenya and India, this new landscape presents both new opportunities and daunting challenges.  A bottom-up approach to agricultural policy and regulation is necessary to bridge the needs at the farm with the requirements of the market.
Please join us for the launch of the report The Human Face of Trade: Lessons on the Enabling Environment from Kenya and India, which combines field research with concrete policy recommendations. How should the rules and regulations of agricultural trade be approached in the context of food security? How does the U.S. foster an enabling environment for agriculture through its Global Food Security Strategy?
