March 2012


The “Food for 9 Billion” blog is now live. It actually has been for a little while, but we didn’t tell anyone. You can see recent posts about World Water Day, the possibility that the world population might not have to reach 9 billion, Ethiopia’s villagization program, and other topics. We hope to post once or twice a week. You can sign up for an RSS feed here.

We’ve also started a Ff9B Twitter feed. If you’re a twitterer, go thither!

Congratulations to our friends at the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR), who just announced their merger with the Bay Citizen. According to CIR, the merger “will create the largest nonprofit organization in the country focused on watchdog and accountability journalism.” You can read about the merger on the CIR blog and on the Bay Citizen site.

CIR is one of our partners on the “Food for 9 Billion” project. Last month the organization won a MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions.
