2009 Bill Gates Launches Global Initiative to End Hunger at Borlaug Dialogue

The 2009 World Food Prize events took place in a somber atmosphere, as Dr. Borlaug had passed away just one month earlier. The Borlaug Dialogue International Symposium was perhaps the most significant of any that Ambassador Quinn organized during his 20 year tenure. The highlight was Bill Gates launching his multi-billion dollar global initiative to end poverty and hunger in the world from the stage of the World Food Prize. In addition, Indra Nooyi, the Chair of PepsiCo, gave the symposium luncheon address, during which she called for a "nutrition revolution." In effect, those two presentations set the agenda for the next decade of global development programs around the world.
