    Strengthening Food Security: A Conversation With US Rep. Chris Stewart

    The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the world economy, putting the food security and nutrition status of millions of people at risk. In fact, for the first time in five years, world hunger increased significantly in 2020. Given its disruption to essential nutrition interventions and supply chains and its negative impacts on dietary patterns, the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have lasting effects on progress toward achieving Sustainable Development Goal 2 of zero hunger.

    The world is at a critical juncture to get on track toward ending food insecurity and malnutrition. What lessons can be learned from recent setbacks and how can governments around the world support a transformation of the world’s food systems in the years to come? What role does the United States development assistance play in ending hunger and how will crucial multisector interventions be funded?

    In this Devex Newsmaker conversation, reporter Teresa Welsh will speak with U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart on the role of Congress in setting the U.S. global nutrition and food security policy, and the prospects for legislation to strengthen U.S. leadership on global nutrition issues.

    Time: 11 a.m. ET | 5 p.m. CET
