Ending Hunger Will Require Compromise – Jo Luck Commentary

Climate change has a significant impact on the future of food security. In Jo Luck’s commentary entitled “Ending World Hunger Will Require Compromise,” found online in Arkansas Business, she discusses the many implications of climate change, evaluates potential solutions and sets priorities to address food and nutrition security. She believes that improving infrastructure and storage facilities, opening trade environments, identifying non-technological solutions, and scientific innovations for food production are necessary steps to catalyze change in advancing food security.

In the commentary posted earlier this summer, Jo Luck stresses that rich, transparent discussions with global leaders will surface the true answer to solving problems related to food security. When a group of experts and smart thinkers with their own diverse backgrounds and perspectives come together, solutions happen.

Scaling Up Food Security

Pedro Sanchez, director of the Agriculture and Food Security Center at Columbia University’s Earth Institute and 2002 World Food Prize laureate, believes that we must look to private businesses for food security solutions. Government programs can’t “scale up” the way the private sector can. The Advisory Committee on Agricultural Innovation & Productivity 2014 report addresses this very real need. Find the report here.
