Cargill Learning Journey to Southern Africa

​In June 2015, Meridian Institute Senior Mediator Heather Lair was part a group of 25 leaders and experts from diverse food and agriculture-related organizations and backgrounds that embarked on a “learning journey” to explore one of the world’s most pressing questions: How will we produce enough food for a growing, more affluent and increasingly urban world in the years ahead? The destination was southern Africa, in the contrasting agricultural economies of South Africa and Zambia.
