The Global Farmer Roundtable, hosted by Truth About Trade & Technology, is held each October as a side event of the World Food Prize Symposium in Des Moines, Iowa, and gathers farmers from around the world to discuss the current issues in food production. Dr. Norman Borlaug, father of the Green Revolution, challenged the world’s farmers to collaborate – learning from each other by sharing their collective experiences, wisdom and knowledge.  He reminded all of us that the “successful revolutions of the past can be templates for our actions and a resource to maintain our morale.”


In that spirit, the Global Farmer Roundtable features a facilitated dialogue among global farmers to better understand and address the challenges of filling an increasing food and nutritional security gap. Through dialogue and time spent together they discover commonalities, share their challenges, discuss tools, technologies and strategies that can be adopted to meet these challenges, and are empowered to meet the demands of closing the food gap through shared work, message and mission.
