Every year, the International Dialogue Team at the World Food Prize Foundation plans and coordinates the Norman E. Borlaug International Dialogue, otherwise known as the Borlaug Dialogue. This symposium attracts foreign dignitaries, heads of state, US senators and representatives, as well as experts in global food insecurity, agriculture, technological innovation, and policy from around the world.
