The World Food Prize Foundation



The World Food Prize Foundation, in partnership with CIMMYT, will convene DialogueNEXT in Mexico on July 10-11, 2024, at CIMMYT’s global headquarters in Texcoco, Mexico. 

CIMMYT is an ambitious, public, international organization that is dedicated to solving tomorrow’s problems today. We are committed to leveraging our skills and expertise to sustainably improve the livelihoods and resilience of resource-poor smallholder famers in the global south, while working towards a more productive, inclusive and environmentally sound agrifood system. CIMMYT will not undertake this work alone. The challenges facing the global community must be overcome through partnership and cooperation. This ambition is evidenced by CIMMYT’s closest partners and its role within CGIAR.
