The 2020 Vision Initiative provides multistakeholder forums for dialogue, debate, information sharing, and consensus building to facilitate the pursuit of ending hunger and poverty.
In 2010, the Initiative continued to promote the Millions Fed project, which includes a book of 20 case studies of proven successes in agricultural development from around the world. Other related materials include a booklet, a full-length film and trailer, a series of discussion papers, and—newly published in 2010—a technical compendium that will serve as a comprehensive resource and learning instrument for researchers, academics, and students.
The 2020 Initiative was also heavily engaged in preparatory work for “Leveraging Agriculture for Improving Nutrition and Health,” an international conference held in New Delhi on February 10–12, 2011. The conference focused on how the agriculture, nutrition, and health sectors can be brought together to make agricultural investments more nutrition- and health-friendly. Leading up to the conference, the 2020 Initiative held four lead-in seminars, commissioned eight background papers and twenty-one policy briefs, sponsored a youth writing contest, and worked with an Advisory Committee to develop a distinctive program. One thousand key stakeholders attended the milestone event.
