The World Food Prize Foundation (WFPF) announced this week its first virtual series, Digital Dialogue. The series will address critical issues in developing a resilient global food system. The first webinar will focus on the immediate challenges we face globally in the time of COVID-19.

Future Digital Dialogues will feature WFP Laureates and experts who will address comprehensive components of the system, current and long-term vulnerabilities, and opportunities for the most impactful responses at the global, national and local levels.
