SAS Webinar: How to Fight Hunger & Food Insecurity (and How Not to)

South Asia’s success in rapidly transitioning from massive food deficits to food surpluses and significant improvements in food security provides important lessons on the pathways towards getting to the SDG goal of zero-hunger. The historic focus on smallholder productivity growth and the consequent rise in incomes has long been seen as a blueprint for agriculture as an engine of economic growth and rural transformation. However, the unilateral strategy of increasing the “pile of grain” has resulted in substantial environmental and societal costs and climate related consequences. Staple grain fundamentalist agricultural policy has hampered food system diversity and slowed the fight against malnutrition. A reboot of food and agricultural policies that promote healthy, equitable and sustainable food systems are an urgent priority. We welcome you to join the South Asia Section of AAEA webinar with guest speaker Dr. Prabhu Pingali from Cornell University.

When: Wednesday, October 25, 9:00am—10:00am Eastern
Agenda: 40 minutes for presentation and 20 minutes for Q&A
Speaker: Dr. Prabhu Pingali, Professor & Director, Tata-Cornell Institute, Cornell University

Congress Passes CR, Averts Shutdown
On September 30th, the House of Representatives was able to pass a short-term continuing resolution to avoid a government shutdown and fund the government through November 17th. This will enable key USDA agencies such as ERS and NIFA to continue operations without disruption. The measure does not include funding for Ukraine but does provide $16 billion for disaster relief. The bill also extends the authority of programs that were set to expire including: Federal Aviation Administration, Animal drug user fees, Community health centers and pandemic preparedness authorities and the National Flood Insurance Program.
