Source: Howard G. Buffett Foundation news release

Ambassador Kenneth Quinn announced today at the World Food Prize Laureate Ceremony, which was hosted by the U.S. Department of State, the launch of a new dialogue for this October's World Food Prize Symposium.

The panel is titled "40 Chances," a term which represents the number of growing seasons that a farmer can expect during his or her lifetime. With the theme of "Redefining the Fight Against Hunger, Poverty, and Suffering," this discussion will bring together former Prime Minister and Founder of the Africa Governance Initiative Tony Blair, Howard G. Buffett, farmer and President of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, and Ritu Sharma, co-founder and President of Women Thrive Worldwide.

As the hosts of this special World Food Prize session, Blair, Buffett, and Sharma will bring together some of the world's leading experts working to solve global food security challenges facing our world over the next forty years.

As part of this open and honest discussion on the drivers of food security, including aid effectiveness, trade, private sector investment, and technological innovation, the panel will also announce new joint programming designed to foster market-based solutions for addressing global challenges related to hunger, poverty, and conflict.
