  • New Global Food Security Research Strategy Released

    The United States has played a leading role in ending hunger and poverty. U.S. Government’s investments in global food security and finding new and innovative ways to promote global food security do more than serve humanitarian goals; they are crucial to America’s continued security and prosperity.

    Evidence indicates that research investments enable the productivity gains that drive global improvements in food security and protect against tomorrow’s food security risks—at home and abroad.

    In response to this imperative, U.S. government agencies that are part of Feed the Future developed a new U.S. Government Global Food Security Research Strategy to help reduce hunger, poverty and malnutrition through science, technology. and innovation.
