CALS Notes

Cornell and CARE

Dean Kathryn Boor joined Cornell University President David Skorton, as well as several CALS faculty and staff from the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, to launch a partnership between Cornell and CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. The event was held at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington D.C. on April 17, and featured presentations and panel discussions with experts from Cornell, CARE, Cargill, and USAID. The partnership was formed to advance sustainable food systems, with an emphasis on strengthening the resiliency of chronically food insecure women and their families. It includes policy advocacy, as well as funding for research and practice-based collaborative activities around the world.
