Fall Global Solidarity Sessions

Addressing Hunger Through Livelihoods and Food Security
What would it take to end world hunger? In the spirit of the 2014 Caritas Internationalis One Human Family, Food for All campaign, the fall 2014 GSN will reflect on this question by drawing on CRS’ deep experience in agriculture, livelihoods, and food assistance, along with the agency’s long history of advocating for the world’s neediest. What are the principles CRS works by related to hunger and how does CRS’ integral human development approach build on a community’s assets and address needs in a holistic way? In a world with limited natural resources, how are environmental and economic sustainability intertwined imperatives in development work today? And, finally, what role do we have in addressing the global hunger problem? Registration and additional information
