World Food Prize Foundation announces 2022 winners
NASA climate scientist Cynthia Rosenzweig has been named the next World Food Prize winner.
World Food Prize Foundation President Barbara Stinson praised Rosenzweig’s pioneering work as a leading climatologist, agronomist and farmer during a ceremony on Thursday. “Her research directly supports work in more than 20 countries to develop national adaptation plans and determine their contributions,” Stinson said.
USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack says Rosenzweig made the first predictions of how climate change would affect North American food production in 1985. “As one of the first scientists to document that climate change was already having an impact on how we grow our food supply,” he said.
