When G20 leaders come together on June 18-19 in Los Cabos, Mexico, food security will once again be at the top of their agenda. At last year’s summit, the G20 Agriculture Ministers took historic steps towards addressing food price volatility. This year, it is vital to take last year’s achievements to the next level. This Policy Seminar will bring together different perspectives on what needs to be done by the G20 to advance the actions and initiatives to curtail food price volatility, reduce poverty, and assure long-term food security.
