Dr. Catherine Woteki - shares insights on eXtension's role in communities and the world

Dr. Catherine Woteki, USDA Under Secretary for Research, Education, and Economics, shares insights on how extension will continue play a part in communities and the world.

In August 2012, Dr. Woteki attended a meeting of the agricultural research leaders from the G-20 countries in Los Cabos, Baja California, Mexico, to help identify global agricultural research and development priorities and define targets needed to sustainably increase agricultural productivity.

Achieving the necessary increase in food production will require deliberate, long term commitments to Ag R&D from all nations, as well as a partnership and a coordinated research effort across these nations.
