ASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health Program joins a panel at the 2023 World Food Prize alongside the United Soybean Board, U.S. Soybean Export Council and Iowa Soybean Association. The discussion, titled “Sustainable Solutions for Every Life, Every Day to Harness Change,” will also include WISHH’s CAST-Cambodia aquaculturist specialist David Samveasna. He will be on hand to discuss how WISHH is leveraging soy checkoff and USDA funding to develop career pathways for youth in aquaculture in Cambodia. Additionally, Samveasna will highlight how WISHH’s work assists Cambodian fish farmers with systems and technology that make their operations more climate resilient and efficient.
The 2023 World Food Prize theme is “harnessing change” with programming focusing on harnessing innovation, adaptation, and diversification to improve systemic resilience, recover from shocks, and sustainably nourish all people.
