Local Development & Global Trade: Poverty Reduction, Food Security and Emerging Economies

Event Date: 
Jan 23, 2020
12:00 pm to 2:00 pm EST
Alliance to End Hunger & American Leadership Initiative (ALI)


Local community development and global trade policy are both critical for sustainable, equitable growth of emerging economies in the developing world. However, discussions concerning local agricultural and economic development are often separate from those of global trade and its impact on developing communities. Please join the Alliance to End Hunger and the American Leadership Initiative to discuss how trade and community development can be and are complementary tools to advancing food security, poverty reduction, and sustainable growth worldwide. 


  • Katrin Kuhlmann | President and Founder New Markets Lab and Visiting Professor, Georgetown University Law Center 
  • Kimberly Elliott | Fellow, Center for Global Development and Visiting Scholar, George Washington University Institute for International Policy. 

Participatory discussion is encouraged. Lunch will be provided.
