International Food Security at Illinois Distinguished Lecture

October 11
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Alice Campbell Alumni Center, Ballroom

“Africa’s agricultural development promises much more than food security.” Dr. Jimmy Smith will present the case that agricultural development in Africa must and can do much more than produce more food. It must and can also accelerate broad growth and inclusive development, widening job opportunities and strengthening markets in rural as well as urban areas, which can help address other challenges, such as current and future refugee crises.
