This May the United States Agency for International Development held the first-ever Feed the Future Global Forum.
In 2009, President Obama mobilized the world to renew its commitment to fighting hunger through agricultural development. Since then, Feed the Future has stood with farmers around the world helping them access the tools, knowledge, and resources needed to overcome poverty, hunger, and undernutrition.
From May 19-21, global leaders from the public and private sectors who are driving Feed the Future’s implementation gathered to:
Highlight results that can be scaled for even greater impact
Identify opportunities for stronger collaboration among partners
Accelerate progress toward our goals of reducing global poverty, hunger and undernutrition
Panels throughout the event highlighted topics including nutrition, women, climate-smart development, scaling, partnerships, and youth involvement.
