On Wednesday, October 16 people across the world will gather to celebrate the official World Food Day theme – “Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition.” NCBA CLUSA supports World Food Day through its extensive work in nutrition-led and conservation agriculture in Niger, Senegal, and Uganda. CLUSA takes a market approach to agriculture and food security and implements solutions that provide long term sustainability and which respond to articulated market needs. CLUSA provides organizational capacity building skills and training that allows farmers across the world to become less reliant on subsistence agriculture and to increasingly become participants in successful agricultural businesses.Visit the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN) to download a World Food Day issues paperand official poster, as well as obtain a list of official events commemorating the day.The National Cooperative Business Association CLUSA International (NCBA CLUSA) is the trade association for cooperative businesses in the United States and an international development organization.
