A Decade of World Food Prize Laureates

A Decade of World Food Prize Laureates | The way it is | Scoop.it

The World Food Prize, pioneered by Dr. Norman E. Borlaug, came to life in 1986. Dr. Borlaug envisioned a prize that would honor those who have made a significant and measurable contribution to improving the world’s food supply. He not wanted to recognize the personal accomplishments of recipients and establish those honorees as role models to inspire others.

The Prize recognizes accomplishments in many fields of study that contribute to feeding the world. As we look at the laureates of the last decade, it is important to recognize that this Prize encompasses not only technology improvements that have contributed to increasing the agricultural productivity of farmers, but also showcases policy accomplishments in health and nutrition, empowerment of people and communities, and the role of humanitarian and development agencies.
