World Food Prize Winner Focuses on Agriculture and Climate

The 2022 awardee of the World Food Prize is a NASA scientist and agronomist focused on climate research. Cynthia Rosenzweig was awarded the $250,000 prize in recognition of her innovative modeling of the impact of climate change on food production, which she's done as a senior research scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and as an adjunct senior research scientist at the Columbia Climate School at Columbia University.

Nobel Prize laureate Norman Borlaug created the World Food Prize in 1986 to recognize scientists and others who have improved the quality and availability of food. Rosenzweig will receive the award later this year.
