First global conference on biofortification

The conference will take place November 9-11, 2010 at the Georgetown University Hotel and Conference Center in Washington, DC. This is the first international effort to take stock of progress made in developing nutrient-rich crops, share lessons learned, and chart the future of biofortification. This three-day event will bring agricultural scientists, public health specialists, policymakers, donors, and business leaders together to move this emerging agricultural intervention for public health forward. Engaging the agriculture, public health, nutrition, and international development communities is crucial to the success of this event and to the development of this intervention.
