Gov't announces 3 international research projects to address world hunger

I think this is wonderful news. World hunger is such an unnecessary blight upon humanity. Glad to see that our government is putting some (science) resources towards it.

The three new partnerships announced today will receive between $2.2 and $4.2 million in funding to advance applied research in food security.

”Canada is pleased to support innovative research projects through the Canadian International Food Security Research Fund that promise to improve the lives and livelihoods of smallholder farmers and their families in developing countries,” said the Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie. “Leveraging the expertise and innovation of the private and public sectors is essential to deliver real development results and break the cycle of poverty for those most in need.”
