Feed the Future
This project is part of the U.S. Government's global hunger and food security initiative.
This webinar will highlight emerging evidence and provide examples from the field on improved and more sustainable program design across the entire food system, from production to consumption.
The role of women’s empowerment for soil health is not yet well understood and also seldom recognized in interventions that aim to improve soil health and land management outcomes.
In Malawi, a country with high levels of child malnutrition, mothers’ demand for premixed cereals was unknown. The safety and quality of the cereals for sale was also largely unstudied.
Two Feed the Future innovation labs have successfully collaborated on cowpea varietal release trials in Senegal using sustainable intensification indicators.
Learn how USAID/Rwanda helped private sector partner Gashora Farms achieve exponential growth.
IFPRI’s Gender, Climate Change and Nutrition Integration Initiative (GCAN) IFPRI’s Gender, Climate Change and Nutrition Integration Initiative (GCAN) addresses the interlinkages between gender, climate change, and nutrition for sustainable food systems.
Now, new research supported by USAID through the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Small Scale Irrigation (ILSSI) is shining the spotlight on a so far under-appreciated avenue for improving nutrition: irrigation.
How important is transportation infrastructure to agricultural markets in a place like Nepal?
Through demonstration plots and model family farms, we support smallholder farmers in adopting the on-farm practice of intercropping their maize fields with nitrogen-fixing legumes along with minimum tillage.
Dominican livestock farmers are quickly realizing that they not only don’t want to be left behind, but that they have a unique opportunity to take advantage of their current practices and resources to access the certified grass-fed/organic market.

More than 80 percent of the world’s coffee is produced by smallholders. Despite their integral role, these farmers face significant challenges that threaten their livelihoods and the long-term viability of the global coffee supply chain.
The increasing demand for land and natural resources brings diverse users into competition. There is a clear need to secure legitimate rights and develop effective process to resolve disputes without destructive conflicts.
Approximately 500 million small and family farms around the world, mostly in developing countries, contribute 80 percent of the global food supply. By 2050, the demand for food is expected to double as the world population reaches 9 billion, which will require an increase in agricultural...
One Health is gaining increasing credibility and visibility as an approach that can combine interventions for both human and animals. However, relatively little attention has been given thus far to the environmental health component including of the resource base – rangelands.
Undergraduate students face challenges gaining hands-on research-for-development experience. Fish4Zambia, a quick start of the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Fish, provided this opportunity to three undergraduates who served as student field assistants for seven days in Zambia.
Constraints in water availability has required groups to work towards improving irrigation efficiency so that the benefits of existing water resources can be stretched farther to achieve greater and more effective agricultural production.
As part of a quick start project with the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Fish and to better understand the needs of fish farmers, Bangladesh Agricultural University developed a survey schedule to survey farms located in Mymensingh, Rajshahi, and Jashore regions.
The degree of reliance on groundwater coupled with challenges of water scarcity, climate vulnerability, and poverty, amplifies the need to manage this resource optimally.
Three Kenyan cooperative dairy farmers participated in a week-long, eye-opening learning exchange visit to India earlier this month to learn from the country’s top dairy cooperative, thanks to support from NCBA CLUSA.
