While the development community as a whole has made progress in eradicating extreme poverty and hunger — the first of eight Millenium Development Goals — there is still much work to be done, and only a little more than 500 days until the goal deadline.  

This month, Devex, along with partners ACDI/VOCA, Chemonics, Fintrac, GAIN, Nestlé and Tetra Tech, is hosting the online conversation Feeding Development to reimagine solutions for a food-secure future. Food security both impacts and is impacted by all facets of global development work, from climate change to land rights and supply chains to nutrition. If you want to work on food security issues, there are many ways you can get involved, including some that may surprise you.
