About the Talk:

Roger will address the global hunger problem as it relates to the 25,000 people who die every day of hunger, malnutrition and related diseases. The presentation will discuss how ending hunger through agriculture development is becoming the great populist cause -- and singular achievement -- of this decade. 

About Roger Thurow:

After three decades at The Wall Street Journal, Roger Thurow joined The Chicago Council on Global Affairs as senior fellow for global agriculture and food policy in January 2010. For 20 years, he served as a Journal foreign correspondent, based in Europe and Africa. His coverage of global affairs spanned the Cold War, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the release of Nelson Mandela, the end of apartheid, the wars in the former Yugoslavia and the humanitarian crises of the first decade of this century – along with 10 Olympic Games. In 2003, he and Journal colleague Scott Kilman wrote a series of stories on famine in Africa that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in International Reporting. Their reporting on humanitarian and development issues was also honored by the United Nations.

Thurow and Kilman are authors of the recent book, ENOUGH: Why the World’s Poorest Starve in an Age of Plenty. In 2009, they were awarded Action Against Hunger’s Humanitarian Award.  Autographed copies of ENOUGH: Why the World’s Poorest Starve in an Age of Plenty will be available for discounted sale at the reception.
