Chicago Global Council's Global Food Security Report Reviews U.S. Foreign Policy Priorities

On 26 April 2012 the Chicago Council on Global Affairs issued its 2012 progress report on U.S. Leadership in Global Agricultural Development.  The report concludes that after 30 years U.S. is beginning to put agricultural development back on its foreign policy priority list.

This is an independent report and the second in series of annual reports that will be tracking the U.S. government’s global agricultural development policy.   It is researched and published by the Council’s Global Agricultural Development Initiative.  This is co-chaired by Dr. Catherine Bertini, former World Food Prize winner and former executive director of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and Dan Glickman, former secretary, U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The report provides the following assessment of stakeholders working on global food security:

U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton

U.S.A.I.D. Administrator Rajiv Shah
outstanding leadership
Millennium Challenge Corporation
outstanding contribution
U.S. Congress
