I had a lovely time today at the 2nd Annual Oxford Food Security Conference sponsored by their "The Future of Food Security" Programme.
My presentation went well, and everything else was really interesting. Met someone who works on food in Jordan and is looking to expand to Cairo. Thanks to AMENDS, I now have very concrete contacts in Cairo to match her with. Woohoo!
The conference was the perfect opportunity to coherently write up the dichotomy I've been ranting about for years. I may be working on getting it published now. One never knows...
