Join Dr. Chase Sova for a discussion on global food insecurity trends and drivers and opportunities for the United States to build on its legacy as a world leader in the fight to end hunger. That legacy of leadership runs through America’s Heartland. As a means of providing assistance to foreign states, President Eisenhower signed Public Law 480 in 1954. This helped American farmers by using food surpluses created by World War II production policies and created the foundation for the Food for Peace program.

Dr. Sova is Senior Director of Public Policy and Research at World Food Program USA, a Washington, DC-based non-profit specializing in international food assistance. He is a Senior Associate with the Center for Strategic and International Studies Global Food Security Program and a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Previously, Chase worked with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, International Center for Tropical Agriculture, and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security. He has served as an expert witness at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and his writing has been featured extensively in peer-reviewed journals. Chase earned his Ph.D. from Oxford University.

The 2024 Waging Peace program series is made possible courtesy of the Eisenhower Foundation with generous support from the Jeffcoat Memorial Foundation.
