Increased urbanization is raising new challenges in food security. Leaders in both developed and developing countries are beginning to recognize that urban food insecurity is at least as pressing a problem as rural food insecurity. Please join The Chicago Council''s Emerging Leaders Class of 2013 as they present the findings of their year-long study of urban food security issues. Ambassador William J. Garvelink and Mike Simmons will deliver remarks and comment on the Emerging Leaders report. Copies of the report will be distributed at the event.
