Lead efforts to develop and coordinate a U.S. strategic approach to food security.
CSIS continues to lead efforts to develop and coordinate a U.S. strategic approach to food security. A CSIS-created task force, chaired by Sen. Richard G. Lugar (R-IN), Sen. Robert P. Casey (D-PA), and Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN), addressed three key areas: raising agricultural productivity, investing in research and development, and improving trade policy. In April, CSIS published Cultivating Global Food Security, a report containing the task force's recommendations for the Obama administration and Congress. In addition to the task force report, CSIS produced four papers to examine in greater depth the issues of agricultural productivity, research and development, trade, and attitudes toward agricultural biotechnology and genetic modification. CSIS continues to shape thinking within the Obama administration's signature Feed the Future initiative.
