The Norman E. Borlaug International Dialogue, known informally as the "Borlaug Dialogue," each year brings together over 1,200 people from more than 65 countries to address cutting-edge issues related to global food security and nutrition. The three-day conference convenes a wide array of scientific experts, policy leaders, business executives and farmers and has been called "the premier conference in the world on global agriculture." Through the Borlaug Dialogue, the World Food Prize Foundation helps build alliances in the struggle against world hunger and malnutrition.
Our virtual side event to the Borlaug dialogue examines the role of partnerships in alleviating global hunger and malnutrition in the context of aquatic food systems.
Partnerships are critical for building sustainable and resilient fisheries and aquaculture systems for enhanced food and nutritional security and livelihoods. Yet, we rarely reflect deeply upon partnerships. There is a lack of a framework for understanding the diversity of partnerships involved in food systems around the world, their objectives and the factors that contribute to their success (or failure).
The purpose of this side event is to envision a framework for evaluating and strengthening partnerships’ role in promoting nutrition and gender sensitive aquatic food systems.
A global panel of distinguished experts representing diverse sectors will draw from their extensive experiences and share their perspectives on “innovative partnerships” for building sustainable and resilient fisheries and aquaculture systems. Different models of in-country, regional and international partnerships, North-South, and South-South partnerships engaging diverse stakeholders from public and private sector and international organizations will be described by the panel members.
