PLPA Members featured in CFANS 50 Hunger Fighters

The “50 CFANS Hunger Fighters” include scientists, educators, and leaders who build on Borlaug’s vision for a well-fed and peaceful world — many of whom are CFANS students, faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, alumni, and supporters who work in a variety of sectors worldwide. They were nominated in recognition of their outstanding efforts to fight hunger locally and globally. Their work ranges from finding policy solutions to end hunger and malnutrition to helping smallholder farmers transition from subsistence agriculture to income-generating farming, to eliminating food deserts in urban areas.

“At CFANS, we take immense pride in the many researchers, students, and alumni working to alleviate food insecurity issues around the world,” said CFANS Dean Brian Buhr. “That work includes creating pest and disease resistant crop varieties; enhancing climate resistance in crops; increasing nutrition in plant and animal foods; identifying ways to reduce environmental pollution; and much more,” said Buhr.
