Tony Blair, Howard G. Buffett, and Ritu Sharma to Chair "40 Chances" Panel at World Food Prize
On June 19, at the State Department, Ambassador Kenneth Quinn announced a special panel at the World Food Prize in October. 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. We are truly honored to be part of such an esteemed panel, on which Ritu will emphasize that small, women farmers should guide the development and adoption of solutions to address world hunger.
