A Conference and a Challenge!

Pope Francis issued a challenge in his 2017 World Food Day address at the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) where he encouraged a “broad and sincere dialogue…to find new ways…the best solutions…to confront hunger and structural poverty in a more effective and promising way.”

Responding to this challenge, CAPP-USA and Fordham University’s Graduate Program in International Political Economy and Development are hosting world experts at a conference with the challenge to identify “concrete actions” to “reduce the number of those going hungry…to guarantee to all human beings the right to be nourished.”

Among the invited presenters are Archbishop Bernardito Auza, Apostolic Nuncio and Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations (New York); Prof. Christopher B. Barrett, International Professor of Agriculture, Cornell University; Prof. Craig Gundersen, Soybean Industry Endowed Professor of Agricultural Strategy, University of Illinois; Dr. Daniel Gustafson, Deputy Director-General (Programmes), Food and Agricultural Organization; Mr. Bill O’Keefe, Vice President, Government Relations and Advocacy, Catholic Relief Services and Prof. Sarah Davidson Evanega, Director, Cornell Alliance for Science and Senior Associate Director of International Programs, College of Agriculture & Life Sciences, Cornell University.

His Excellency Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, the Vatican Foreign Minister and head of the Holy See’s Delegation to the 2018 Opening of the UN General Assembly, is the invited dinner speaker.
