Agriculture

One of the most pressing problems of the 21st century remains feeding the hungry, an issue that touches all nations. Those who cannot feed their own search for answers, from boosting agricultural productivity and mitigating crop damage, to improving distribution and lessening spoilage of foodstuffs.

People to People delegates and their international counterparts examine methods to maximize productivity and realize the potential of alternative food sources. Specialized teams exchange ideas with their foreign counterparts regarding food processing, packaging, storage, distribution and marketing.

As a People to People delegation member, observe field demonstrations of agricultural methods and visit processors and shippers to understand their challenges in delivering, communication and agricultural exchanges.
