Aidmatrix President & CEO Governor Scott McCallum spoke at a Joint Private Sector Development & Food Security and Agriculture Workgroup Event, hosted by the Society for International Development, Washington, D.C. Chapter on March 21 in Washington, D.C. He, along with other industry professionals, spoke about private sector innovations in development, and their potential and current use within food security and disaster relief. The workgroup was titled: Bridging the Gap – Private Sector Innovations in Development: A Focus on Food Security, Disaster Relief, and Supply Chain Logistics.

From SID:  The case for development is strong. At a time where strategic partnerships and sustainable innovations designed to drive effective global development are flourishing, we look to share and explore some shining examples that truly exemplify private sector innovations that aim to tackle the most pressing issues regarding food security, disaster relief, development logistics, and the engagement and inclusion of smallholder farmers in the value chain.
