Virginia Tech College of Agriculture and Life Sciences expands its global reach with the GAP Report
The Global Agricultural Productivity Report (GAP Report) is a call to action to invest in proven strategies to produce food, feed, fiber, and biofuel in a sustainable manner to meet the needs of a growing world. The GAP Report has a global following of national and international policymakers, agribusinesses, U.N. agencies, universities, and nongovernmental organizations.
Created by the Global Harvest Initiative in 2010, the GAP Report will be produced for the first time in 2019 by Virginia Tech, a leading U.S. land-grant university based in Blacksburg, Virginia.
The Virginia Tech College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) — which has long been a leader in empowering people around the world to produce sustainable food while increasing productivity — will become an even larger knowledge platform with the addition of the Global Agricultural Productivity (GAP) Report.
The report aligns with the mission of CALS Global, a unit within the college that was formed in 2016 with the goal of building partnerships, creating new opportunities, and empowering success while serving globally.
The tenth annual GAP Report will be presented on October 16, 2019, in Des Moines, Iowa, at the World Food Prize.
