Conference // "Feeding The World: Accelerating Global Collaboration on Food Security", Amsterdam

Twelve months on from The Economist's inaugural Feeding the World summit, a high-level audience will gather in Amsterdam to discuss how to accelerate progress in coordinating efforts to tackle the planet's food security crisis.
