The World Academy of Art and Science serves as a forum for reflective scientists, artists, and scholars dedicated to addressing the pressing challenges confronting humanity today. It was founded in 1960 by eminent intellectuals including Albert Einstein; Robert Oppenheimer (Manhattan Project); Bertrand Russell, Joseph Needham, co-Founder of UNESCO; Lord Boyd Orr, first Director General of FAO; Brock Chisholm, first Director General of WHO; and others.

“Strategies for Global Food Security” is one of the WAAS special focus meetings that gathers leading thinkers and practitioners, scientists and policymakers, investors and initiative leaders to discuss scalable solutions, test ideas and propose strategies for meeting humanity’s needs and supporting human development in the context of increasing global pressures of climate change, health crisis and economic distress.
