Feeding Cuba: Sustainable Agriculture and Challenges of Production in Cuba Today


The Global Studies program at The New School and the Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy (ASCE) Wednesday, April 15, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT) New York, NY


As relations between Cuba and the United States reach a historic turning point with the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, agriculture will remain a key issue for the future of US-Cuban economic relations, presenting significant opportunities for trade and sustainability.

The Global Studies program and the Association for the Study of the Cuban Economy (ASCE) present ASCE’s Tenth Annual Carlos F. Diaz-Alejandro lecture, to be given by Professor Pedro Sanchez of the Earth Institute at Columbia.  Professor Sanchez is the director of the Agriculture and Food Security Center and former co-chair of the United Nations Millennium Project Hunger Task Force and former Director General of the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) in Nairobi, Kenya. Dr. Sanchez will address questions of food security and food production in the developing world with special attention to Cuba and its prospects for US-Cuban commercial engagement, enhanced private enterprise in Cuba’s agricultural sector, and improvements in Cubans’ nutrition and standard of living.
