Young Indian Scholars supported by TCi at GFS Conference

The Tata-Cornell Agriculture and Nutrition Initiative (TCi) offered funding to bring Young Indian Scholars (Indian citizens based in India), who have an accepted paper/poster to the 2nd International Conference on Global Food Security. Diversity of perspectives and experiences must be prioritized, especially at a “global” event.  We look forward to hearing more about their work!  Look for these posters and presentations at the conference:
