Technology’s role in combating the global food crisis was the key theme during a United Nations (UN) Private Sector roundtable discussion moderated by Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). The roundtable discussion was part of a broader UN Private Sector Forum that featured global business leaders and key UN officials discussing the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and Food Sustainability. "Technological innovations can help solve the global food crisis and as industry leaders, we must collaborate with governments and the United Nations to promote the use of new technologies for food security and sustainability," said Shapiro. "Advancements in technology not only contribute to the efforts to fight hunger on a global scale, but they also aid in building economic sustainability in developing regions. Every citizen of the world must have access to technology to be connected." The UN Private Sector Forum consisted of several roundtable discussions focused on the global food crisis and food sustainability and featured global business leaders including executives from Intel, Coca Cola, and Ericsson. Conference speakers included UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon; former U.S. President Bill Clinton, and World Bank President Robert B. Zoellick.
