Food security is one of the defining issues of this century, and DuPont is once again taking action to address this huge challenge.
DuPont has commissioned the Global Food Security Index, developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit, measuring the drivers of food security in 105 countries.
At the 2012 G8 Summit on Advancing Food and Nutrition Security Symposium at the Chicago Council, DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman stated,“We need a clear metric that enables us to see, transparently and objectively, what we’re up against…Governments, private and public sector entities need a common language to discuss the root cause of hunger so they can make better informed decisions that drive sustainable action at a local level.”
We hope is that this index becomes a tool for promoting collaboration, generating insights and stimulating action to feed a growing global population. We hope that policymakers, businesses, NGOs, academics and farmers will use this tool for research, planning and collective action.
